Humble Surrender – Hear My Cry

About This Talk

In the Bible, we read of how Ezra was faced with a great difficulty and how he responded by calling for everyone to fast and pray. Out of the place of prayer and fasting came humility and faith in God and everyone was aware that the hand of God was on them. As we journey through life, we are called to draw near to God, to call upon the Lord, to humbly seek him and to pray and fast.

Points to Ponder

Draw near to God

Call upon the Lord

Humbly seek Him

Pray and Fast

About The Series

Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river Ahava, that we might humble ourselves before our God, to seek from him a safe journey for ourselves, our children, and all our goods. For I was ashamed to ask the king for a band of soldiers and horsemen to protect us against the enemy on our way, since we had told the king, “The hand of our God is for good on all who seek him, and the power of his wrath is against all who forsake him.” – Ezra 8:21-22 (ESV)

At the beginning of the year, people reflect on the past, celebrate, and start anew. For some, thinking about the future can be overwhelming and cause fear and anxiety. Considering past experiences can also make you worried about what the coming year might bring, especially if there are challenges in marriage, health, finances, and relationships. Despite this, there is hope for better things to come.

In January 2024, take the opportunity to ask God for guidance, solutions, and protection as you embark on the journey through the year. It’s a time to humble ourselves before God, draw closer to Him, and align ourselves with His promises.
