Today’s reading Ezra 1-2

Ezra 1:5 Then rose up the chief of the fathers of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests, and the Levites, with all them whose spirit God had raised, to go up to build the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem.

God stirred up the spirit of Cyrus to build Him a house. Cyrus then asked the people who had felt God move in their lives and motivate them to go and build the house. Some were motivated to give. Others were motivated to go but it seems like all of God’s people took part in the work in one way or the other.

God is at work in our hearts. When you have desires to do something for God then you can know that God is at work in your life. Are you sensitive to Him and His leading? Do you listen to see what He might say to you?

I want to be stirred by Him and I always want to be waiting to hear what He has to say!
