In EZRA Six – and verse nineteen A feast has been restored
The Israelites – it will be seen Had God, their Lord, ignored.

Their story you will all recall Concerning – NEHEMIAH
Who started on Jerusalem ‘s wall And built it – Higher and Higher.

In ESTHER there’s a warning And loudly – it is rung
For Haman was, one morning On his own gallows – hung.

Faith is something hoped for The evidence – not yet seen;
JOB had faith, with patience And few – like him – there’s been.

 Ezra 8:21  Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava , that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance.

 Nehemiah 1:9  But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.

 I didn’t have any scriptures underlined in Esther, I love the story. I chose these:
Esther 4:14-16  For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer, Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.

 Job 23:10  But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.

Trust God for your day, Today.
