28My God was on my side and I was ready to go...
What better combination is there?
There is nothing better to give you confidence than knowing that God is with you. The entire chapter has been a prelude to this line...Ezra sets up all the things that point to the fact that God was with him and so without any further ado he gets going. There is a song that says, "Jesus and me we are a majority and no matter how big the mountain it will have to leave. So why should I be troubled and have anxiety, And let life's little problems bother me? Because He lives I have the strength and because He is that assures my victory."
Whenever I Speak His Name (You can listen to the song, it's old but hey I like it. The line I am talking about is in the second verse)
That is what Ezra is saying. I am ready to face the unknown and do something that changes the world because God is on my side, and if God is on my side then I know I am on the winning side.
Lord help us to remember that you have called us, you have given us everything we need to do what you have called us to do and Your Word says that you will never leave us or forsake us. With that in mind let us respond like Ezra, bring it on I am ready to go.
