This was the word of the LORD spoke to me. “Read my word and read it clear. May it enter your ears and it gives you insight and understanding,” says the LORD.
So, this is what the word of the LORD said at Ezra chapter 4, starting with verse 1.
Now, you must ask yourself. How did these men become aware of Zerubbabel’s building plan? And why did they wait until Zerubbabel had all the materials, resources, and finances needed to THEN want to be a part of the plans of the LORD was doing through Zerubbabel?
You see, there will be those speculators who will sit back and watch you work hard in your grassroots stage. They will watch you attempt to grow networks with different folks, see your challenges in raising funds, and observe you struggling to promote and market your product or service. They will watch you rise and fall and not lift a finger or a voice to advocate or aid in supporting your efforts or struggles – the infancy and challenging years of your building plans. But the very moment when everything comes together. When you ascertain all the money you need, the fanfare has arrived in all its glory, and all the materials and resources you can dream of have finally come. Then the BOTTOM FEEDERS arrive in their flame of glory, riding their white horse offering to help while declaring we are one and the same – “… we seek your God…,” we too sacrifice to the same GOD.
how should you respond
This blog is really not about me, but more about my Father and our relationship. How we interact with one another and my response to His prompting. To be honest, at the moment, I do not know what to expect from this blog. I have no idea how personal I will get, what exactly I will share, and how often I will do it. But one thing is for certain. I will share what God places on my heart to share.
