Bible Blessing-123


He was a teacher well versed in the Law of Moses, which the Lord, the God of Israel, had given. The king had granted him everything he asked, for the hand of the Lord his God was on him. (Ezra 7:6)
One of the special things about this man, Ezra, we read in Ezra 7:10..... For Ezra had devoted himself to the study and observance of the Law of the Lord, and to teaching its decrees and laws in Israel. 
Something that every child of God should do is devoting themselves to the study and observance of God’s word. Not only studying and doing the things that are written in the Word of God are important, but, we, as we gain adequate knowledge, must also teach others who are new to the faith, what we have learnt. God expects that from each of us. Of course, in the initial stages of our life as believers, we may not be able to do it, but as we grow in the faith, and as we devote ourselves to the study and meditation of the Word of God, we can start teaching receptive hearts, what God requires them of their lives. 
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations" was what Jesus told his disciples, and they went out, to different parts of the world and that’s how countless people came to know that Jesus Christ is Saviour of the world and that salvation can be received by believing in his atoning sacrifice on the cross. Ezra devoted himself to the study of the law of the Lord. We must ask ourselves how much time we meditate on the Word of God because that’s very important in our life as a believer. The psalmist says, "I have hidden your teachings in my heart." 
In Psalm 1, we also read of the blessedness of a person who continually meditates on the Word of God.....
He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. (Psalm 1:3)
Have you been ignoring reading the Word and meditating on it? Take a decision this day to devote quality time to the study of the Word of God. Obey what the Word says, and as you mature in the Word, make it your duty to teach others also the same.
Regarding Ezra, the Bible says, "the hand of the Lord his God was on will it be in your life too, if you delight in God's Word, obey it and also teach others the same.
