- The Lord used a pagan king
to initiate the rebuilding of His Temple! This King would even make sure
they had safe passage and provisions! To get to return back to their homes
after so many years in exile must have been an unbelievable feeling. To go
back to their old property and start life over again must have been filled
with emotion. Those that couldn’t return
were more than eager to give gifts toward those that were going to
pave the way. The entire community was charged with excitement.
- No matter how impossible the situation may seem, God never forgets the promises that He has made to His people! There is always hope in Him! Never give up! Repent, turn toward Him, and prepare to be delivered!
