Ezra’s Talk: God With Us

Ask God to listen to your concerns

”Lord, you are the God who saves me; day and night I cry out to you.“
Psalms 88:1 NIV

Read the Bible to learn about God’s concerns

”Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them.“
Proverbs 4:5 NIV

Ask God to show you what He cares about in your life, relationships, words, and thoughts.

”Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless.“
James 1:26 NIV

”Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.“
James 1:27 NIV

Orphans: Youth and children without guidance or direction may need clothing, food, encouragement, friendship, and mentoring.

Widows: those without companions or shelter need community, friendship, protection, and food.

”Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.“
1 Peter 5:7 NIV

Turn away from the things that keep you from connecting (or staying connected) with God.

”How many wrongs and sins have I committed? Show me my offense and my sin.“
Job 13:23 NIV

”Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.“
Acts 2:38 NIV
