Bible Verse of the Week: Ezra 8:22b

"'The gracious hand of our God is on everyone who looks to Him, but His great anger is against all who forsake Him.'" -Ezra 8:22b
We are constantly guarded by the sword and shield of our Lord. However, many believers do not express a holy jealousy for God's invisible protection by rather seeking constant aid from man. Why should we hastily run to man for assistance if the Lord is our implicit reliance? It is true that we are here for each other, but many overuse man's help resulting in belief in man instead of God. We should wait upon the Lord only. Do not dishonor God's Name by forsaking Him, but glorify It by always looking to Him. ~Jesselyn
