This Ezra went up from Babylon, and he was a scribe skilled in the law of Moses, which the Lord God of Israel had given; and the king granted him all he requested because the hand of the Lord his God was upon him. Ezra 7:6 NASB
There is a lot written about how to be successful in life. In fact, you can go enroll in classes, attend trainings and webinars and get coaching.
But Ezra knew one special key to be successful, follow God’s ways!
Because Ezra was diligent to know and follow God’s Word and trust in Him, God blessed him by causing King Artaxerxes to grant all his requests.
The thing is as Ezra was spending time with the Lord, the Lord was working in the background causing all to work together according to His ways.
Because God doesn’t change, the same is true for you. God blesses His people who love Him and walk according to His ways. This means that God is active and paying attention to our everyday lives!
But overall, we don’t follow God to be successful in this life. It is a benefit that is a result of His people seeking Him.
And ultimately, God’s success benefits aren’t just for this life. They make an impact for all eternity.
What about you? Are you seeking Him fully?
Father, guide my steps and let me walk in Your ways.
