Nothing is Impossible

I have to smile.

God tells us in the beginning of Ezra that he ‘moved the heart of Cyrus, King of Persia.’  I love this because Cyrus was not a believer.  He was a pagan king.  But he moved when God moved his heart.

Cyrus released the Israelites to go back to Jerusalem so they could rebuild the temple of God.  The king was also gave back 5400 articles of gold and silver that had been taken from the temple of God before it was destroyed.

God moved the heart of a pagan king who then orchestrated and sponsored the rebuilding of God’s temple.

That’s my God.  He uses everyone and everything to accomplish his will.  Even those who don’t believe in him are under his authority and direction.

His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

And I want to make sure I’m right in the middle of that – don’t you?

Nothing is impossible for you, Abba Father.
