When does the favor of God rest on you?
Ezra 7:6 says, “Ezra came up from Babylon; and he was a skilled scribe in the scripture, which the Lord God of Israel had given. The king granted him all his request, according to the hand of the Lord his God upon him.”
Ezra 7:9 says, “…according to the good hand of his God upon him.”
Ezra 7:10 says, “For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the scripture, and to do it, and to teach the word in Israel.”
It seems that the favor of God comes to a person as they:
- Seek God through the study of His word
- Live out what you have studied
- Teach it by demonstration.
