God is standing by to glorify Jesus through the testimony of your life. Will we receive the burden of the Lord to seek Him, to pray, and to rebuild? Or will we overlook God’s faithfulness and permit the ruins of this society to remain? When the hand of God moves and is upon us even the enemies of God must acknowledge His power. We must rise up in the strength of the Lord, and if we will then the faithfulness of Christ will keep us. Let us be sent in the name of the Lord, and His favor will be upon us to begin to walk in the supernatural. The promises of God are secure. We must press in to the Lord today! It’s time to fast and pray.
And it came to pass in the month of Nisan, in the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes, when wine was before him, that I took the wine and gave it to the king. Now I had never been sad in his presence before. Therefore the king said to me, “Why is your face sad, since you are not sick? This is nothing but sorrow of heart.”
So I became dreadfully afraid, and said to the king, “May the king live forever! Why should my face not be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers’ tombs, lies waste, and its gates are burned with fire?”
Then the king said to me, “What do you request?”
So I prayed to the God of heaven. And I said to the king, “If it pleases the king, and if your servant has found favor in your sight, I ask that you send me to Judah, to the city of my fathers’ tombs, that I may rebuild it.”
Then the king said to me (the queen also sitting beside him), “How long will your journey be? And when will you return?” So it pleased the king to send me; and I set him a time.
Furthermore I said to the king, “If it pleases the king, let letters be given to me for the governors of the region beyond the River, that they must permit me to pass through till I come to Judah, and a letter to Asaph the keeper of the king’s forest, that he must give me timber to make beams for the gates of the citadel which pertains to the temple, for the city wall, and for the house that I will occupy.” And the king granted them to me according to the good hand of my God upon me.
