Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"A Warrior's Heart is a Prepared Heart"
"For Ezra had prepared his heart to Seek the Law of the Lord, and to Do it, and to Teach statutes and ordinances in Israel." (emphasis added)
Oh the Power of a heart prepared to Seek, and Do, and Teach the Law of God!
Wow, what a great Breakfast this is this morning.
Our brother Warrior Ezra shows us that a Warrior's heart is a prepared heart.
Ezra was a "skilled scribe in the Law of Moses"(v.6). He was "expert in the commandments of the Lord and His statutes to Israel"(v.11). King Darius recognized him as "the priest, a scribe of the Law of the God of Heaven."(v.12,21)
The hand of God was upon him (v.28), because he had a Warrior's Heart that was "prepared to Seek, Do, and Teach the Law of God.
Listen up Warrior! Our heart is like a "homing beacon" set upon God's heart.
A homing device is designed to track the "movement" of an individual. This is how we Seek our Commander. Our heart is the homing device that tracks the movement of God as He leads each day.
A prepared heart Seeks God in daily prayer, bible study, and meditation on His Word. In all our ways we acknowledge Him and He directs us.(Prov.3:6)
A Prepared Heart then Does what God says in His Word, applying it to their lifestyle. Then a Prepared Heart Teaches what we Seek, and Do, to others - so they can learn how to Seek, Do, and Teach like us.
We Follow and Imitate our King and Commander because we Love Him Supremely and we Walk with a Prepared Heart - the Heart of a Warrior!
Warrior at your side
