Ezra 1:1 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,
It is something beautiful that God would stir up the heart of a man or woman to do something for Him. Cyrus and the entire book of Ezra are a testimony to this truth.
The question after reading this first chapter should be, what is God stirring your heart to do? Do you often think of and dream of doing something great for God? Do you think of preaching, building a temple or a wall around a temple for His honor and glory? Do you have a real hunger to see people saved in your Sunday School class?
Whatever it is that God is doing in your heart is wonderful! Why don’t you step out by faith on what He is leading you to do? Start by taking the small steps that you can now. Do not worry about fulfilling the dream just worry about doing what you can, where you are, with what you have.
God who stirs you up will take you step by step to where you are able to fulfill the dream He has stirred up in your heart!
