Who knows what God wants us to do as we devote long years to study the Word and obey it? Will we do it even if we don’t see why God is preparing us in that manner? We want the gracious hand of God to be upon us, but will we take the pain that goes along with it? Ezra 7
Lord, even while I am living in an land away from my Promise Land and don’t know Your blueprint of my life, let the study of Your Word and obeying it be like a burning fire shut up in my bones.
Lord, I know You delight in those who seek You and honour those who obey Your Word, but I study the Word and obey it not for any reward but just because I want to carry Your heart.
