Preparing For Your Journey

Preparing For Your Journey

There, by the Ahava Canal, I proclaimed a fast, so that we might humble ourselves before our God and ask him for a safe journey for us and our children, with all our possessions.  I was ashamed to ask the king for soldiers and horsemen to protect us from enemies on the road, because we had told the king,“The gracious hand of our God is on everyone who looks to him, but his great anger is against all who forsake him.” so we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and he answered our prayer.(Ezra 8:21-23)

Pray and fast (Proverbs 1:5)

Is any of you in trouble ?  He should pray.  Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise  (James 5:13)

Be consistent (Hebrews 13:8)

They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent.  Finally these men said, “ We will never find any basis or charges against this man Daniel unless it has something to do with the law of his god.  (Daniel 6:4, 5)

Wait on His answer.  (Psalms 91:15)

In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice;in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.  (Psalms 5:3)
