“Then, there at the Ahava River (river of love), I proclaimed a fast; so that we could humble ourselves before our God and ask a safe journey of Him for ourselves, our little ones and all our possessions.”
Ezra 8:21 CJB
What a great concept instead of looking to the world for help Ezra humbles himself and goes to the LORD! We need to be seeking the LORD for everything, because He is the River of Love!
“When you seek Me, you will find Me, provided you seek Me wholeheartedly.”
Jeremiah 29:13 CJB
When we need direction, answers and salvation we can always find it when we seek the LORD!
“For I would have been ashamed to ask the king for a detachment of soldiers and horsemen to protect us from enemies along the road, since we had said to the king, The hand of our God is on all who seek Him, for good; but His power and fury is against all who abandon Him. So we fasted and asked our God for this, and He answered our prayer.”
Today, let’s really spend some time seeking the LORD! We need to be in prayer and maybe try fasting, but we as believers really need to be spending some serious time seeking the LORD!
May your day be blessed seeking the LORD! He is the River of Love!
