Bible Bites: Ezra 1:1 #1 – How to Live Your Purposeful Life

Song of the Week

Song: See A Victory by Elevation Worship


As the Word of God is a living text, people have different ways of interpreting these texts. So, feel free to share your thoughts and opinions down in the comments below! Remember to like and share on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!


Living with Purpose

In Ezra 1, King Cyrus was sort of the catalyst of God’s good work.

King Cyrus was the one who initiated God’s movement in Jerusalem after years of prison and slavery.

King Cyrus allowed God to be a catalyst, even though King Cyrus wasn’t fully aware of God.

Herein lies the lesson to learn: God will always use you as a medium whether you asked for it or not, big or small.

God is the one who will stir you up on the inside for a purpose bigger than you, one that scares you.


Feeling like You’re Worthless?

Have you ever felt like you were good for nothing? That you were pathetic and useless?

That’s not what God said about you. He said you are perfectly and wonderfully made. Everything about you was made to achieve His purpose. Your flaws and your strengths are to serve Him.

Many a time, our greatest weaknesses are our biggest strengths. It seems like it is only a matter of time and experience before the full potential of your strengths is realized. And oftentimes, they’re only realized through hardship.

Every hard season in your life made for two things:
1) For you to draw closer to God
2) For you to grow stronger

It maybe is painful and uncomfortable, but if God sees that you can get through this, then at the end of it, He knows you can be trusted with the treasures of Heaven.


Call to Action

Don’t let your perception of yourself get in the way of the interception of God. God wants to use you, so let God use you.

He sees value in you even when you don’t.

So, who are you to say you’re worth nothing when God sees so much in you?

God loves you. Have a fruitful week!
