Stick to Your Faith in God!
As you make bold statements about God, and cooperate with Him to do the humanly impossible, stick to your faith in God. Why? Because the enemy will attack by causing you to doubt what God promised. You will be tempted to “walk by sight” and do things in your human strength, which hinders God-sized outcomes.
Ezra, the priest and scribe, was ashamed to ask King Artaxerxes for a military escort back to Jerusalem because he said to the king: “Our God’s hand of protection is on all who worship him, but his fierce anger rages against those who abandon him” (Ezra 8:22).
The long trip back home was full of unknowns. Ezra had to stick to his faith. As you approach Christmas, and the challenges in the new year, no matter what, stick to your faith in God.
