EZRA—THE GOOD HAND OF THE LORD

Ezra 7. 1-12, 27-28

For the next four days we shall consider the interesting character of Ezra. He played a vital part in the return of God’s people from Babylon. It was at the instigation of the pagan king, Artaxerxes, that he made the move to return to Jerusalem. It is reckoned that he returned about 57 years after those who returned under Cyrus. Each movement contributed to God’s vital purpose for Israel. 

We notice in our reading what kind of man he was. He was a well-instructed scribe in God’s law. He was also a priest, and this would explain his deep concern for the rebuilding of God’s house. Under him we observe the history of the return, and the spiritual reformation of the nation. We think mainly today on those words that express the sense that Ezra had that he was on God’s business, as he moved forward to accomplish the work, ‘The good hand of his God upon him’; cf. vv. 6, 9, 28. This consciousness strengthened his resolve, and confirmed his commitment. 

We can learn from this that what God inspires He is ready to pursue to the end. We notice that Ezra had prepared his heart in the affairs of God’s law. His heart was ready and obedient in God’s things. So he was able to praise God that He had put it into his heart to pursue the course he took. This is significant, and teaches us a valuable lesson. God needs people who are open to Him. He knows those that He can call on to accomplish things for Him. We only have to think of men like Samuel, David, Paul the apostle, and others like them who were open to respond to their God when He had work for them to do. Inward preparation and motivation is vitally important in any work for the Lord. We notice that it was such a man as Ezra who could say that he moved according to the good hand of his God upon him. 

Today, if we would know God’s direction, let us spend a while alone with Him and allow His word to enter our minds and our hearts. The Holy Spirit can inspire us to rise to the challenge of those things God has for us to do. Compare Acts 13. 1-4; many in early church days had such experiences.
