“Then everyone who trembled at the words of the God of Israel…” (Ezra 9:4)
I am reminded also of what the Lord says in Isaiah 66:2, “This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word.”
As I ponder this little phrase several questions come to mind:
- Where are the “everyones” in our world who “tremble at God’s Word”?
- Why do we NOT tremble at the Word of God?
- What would the church look like if the saints of God trembled at God’s Word?
I’ll just leave those questions hanging out there this week for you and I to think about. I do know this – Ezra was a man who trembled at God’s Word and it made all the difference in his life. I’m not sure that I know many people that I can say this about. Including myself. Much to ponder.
