The book of Ezra is a reminder to stay “strong, alert, and courageous” in GOD. This book was filled with a lot of obstacles and opposition from the enemy. The book starts with a move of God on people’s hearts to come together and fulfill his word. The exiles return to rebuild the temple and the altar facing opposition. God sent prophets to encourage and help them rebuild and gave them all the favor. They reminded them of how faithful GOD is. Ezra played a big role in the return of the people and leading them in prayer and teachings to be closer to God. The enemy is a defeated foe when you realize you fight from the point of victory.
In the book of Ezra I have learned that if God is for us then who can be against us. God tells us to be strong and alert and courageous. Strong in the Lord not to be afraid and also to be alert of the enemy and his lies! God wants his peoples hearts, Gods people return after Gods discipline, to now do Gods will and rebuild the temple. Gods people had to rebuild the temple even during strong opposition, which they had to use what God has told them not to be afraid and be Courageous and strong and alert wow so good. God even sent his people prophets to help and encourage them to rebuild the wall and remind them how good and Faithful God is. Ezra is a mighty man of God, he played a big role in the return of the people nd leading them in prayer and teaching them to be closer to God.
