Dear Reader, The books of Ezra and Nehemiah will encourage, challenge, and strengthen our faith, and give us a renewed sense of purpose in our prayer lives. In them, we see afresh our Heavenly Father's dealings with His people; His faithfulness, His covenant promises and His absolute sovereignty over the nations. Although the story begins with the decree of King Cyrus which allowed the exiles to return home and, like every good story, it's best to start at the beginning, this story does not start at the first chapter of the book itself. The prophet Isaiah wrote of Cyrus, more than a century before he was even born! When most mums and dads are pondering as to what to 'call the baby,' God had already named him! This man was prophesied to become one whom God would also call, 'His shepherd.' In other words, Cyrus would arrive at a position in his life which would, in the greater plan of God, open the door for GodÆs people to be released from their seventy year captivity and return to their own land. So it was in 539 B.C., Cyrus, King of Persia, along with Darius the Mede, conquered King Belshazzar, King of Babylon and thus began a series of events which would bring to fruition prophesies and promises God had given through the prophets, Isaiah and Jeremiah. God's faithfulness to His covenant people, through His spoken word, would see them rejoice in His grace and favour. Their seventy year captivity had come to an end and freedom beckoned. God had remembered His promises and He had not forgotten their situation. As you read, may you be stirred in spirit, energised in vision and determined to seek the God of the Word with a new sense of purpose and resolve. When you feel as if God has forgotten you He is faithful and He remembers When you think He hasn't heard or isn't answering He is faithful and He remembers When time and options seem to be running out He is faithful and He remembers When you have done all you can do, lift up your head He is faithful and He remembers
