Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Sunday 23rd May 2021
n Ezra Chapter 6, the children of Israel decided
to build the house of God upon their return
from exile. The Bible tells us that as they built it, they
prospered. Ezra 6:14 tells us how they prospered: “…
they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai
the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo....”
The latter part says, “And they builded, and
finished it, according to the commandment of the
God of Israel, and according to the commandment
of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia.”
This is profound, instructive and enlightening. They
prospered in their work, they built and finished
it, according to the commandment of the God of
Israel, and the instructions of Kings Cyrus, Darius
and Artaxerxes, who were kings of Persia at different
times. Those prophets caused it to happen through
their message. They brought them the Word of God.
The ministry of the Word is so important in our
lives it’s integral to every success. That’s why we bring
the Word to you every day through this devotional,
to strengthen you, especially in these dark days.
We’re not moved by what’s happening in the world today, because we know that in all these things, we’re
more than conquerors (Romans 8:37). We prevail
by the Word. Our glory, victories and success were
preordained before the foundation of the world.
We’re aware that the current imbroglio around the
world is the handiwork of Satan. He tries to weaken the
nations and their economies. But God never leaves you
stranded. He keeps bringing you His Word to guide,
encourage and strengthen you. Through the ministry
of the Word, the wisdom and skill you require to be
victorious are imparted to you.
Keep learning and meditating on the Word of
God it’ll grow mightily in you and prevail. You’ll be
a wonder to your world, dominating circumstances,
living above Satan and the elements of this world.
