The Restored Orchard

Weekly Declaration

Weekly Declaration

As believers, we are God’s children. A child of God will reflect His character. Each week, we focus on one scripture while highlighting a declaration (Who God is) and affirmation (Who we are as believers).

This week’s scripture is:

When the builders had laid the foundation of the Lord’s temple, the priests, dressed in their robes and holding trumpets, and the Levites descended from Asaph, holding cymbals, took their positions to praise the Lord, as King David of Israel had instructed.They sang with praise and thanksgiving to the Lord: “For he is good; his faithful love to Israel endures forever.” Then all the people gave a great shout of praise to the Lord because the foundation of the Lord’s house had been laid.

Ezra 3:10-11

Declaration

God is good, faithful, and loving.

Affirmation

I am filled with praise and thanksgiving for the Lord’s goodness.

The image of celebration at the rebuilding of the Lord’s temple in Ezra provides insight into the Israelites return from exile. Chapter 3 highlights the restoration of temple worship. When we realize how good and faithful God is to us, we should be filled with thanks and praise.

A Prayer Starter…

Heavenly Father, You are good and gracious. When I look over my life, I see how You have intervened on my behalf. I just want to say Thank You….. I praise you for all that you are and will be. Lord, You are holy and worthy of my worship and devotion… Amen.

S. Enoch
