Ezra 8:21 – 23
I. THE PEOPLE HAD COMMITTED THEMSELVES.
- They had boasted of God’s Providence and power.
- They had sought His way in going through the lands of trouble – evil, bandits, and murderers.
II. THEY WOULD NOT ASK HELP OR PROTECTION FROM MAN OR GOVERNMENT.
- Due to their boasting in God.
- The hand of God is on those who depend on Him.
III. GOD GRANTS THEIR PETITIONS.
- He provided their material needs.
- He provided their protection.
- He still does, for all those who will trust in Him.
