The Passover Celebration Restored (Ezra 6:19 – 22)

On the fourteenth day of the first month, the descendants of the captivity kept the Passover.  The priests and Levites had purified themselves and were clean.  They slaughtered the Passover lambs for the people and themselves.  All who were clean ate the Passover together, and kept the Feast of Unleavened Bread seven days with joy; for the Lord had made them joyful and turned the heart of the king of Assyria toward them to strengthen them.

When a Christian looks at the work of the enemy, even if it is destructive and/or hateful, it is easy to only see that action as evil.  However, at times, God takes him or her down paths that lead to a brighter future and a more spiritually prosperous existence.  Don’t curse the valley, it leads to the next adventure.  Don’t curse the mountain as you climb, think of the view from the top of it.  Don’t curse the descent, it is only the start of the next part of God’s plan for your life.  Bless the Lord and thank Him for His word and guidance in your life.  Celebrate Him in the midst of every stage of your progress, because God is surely up to something great in your life!
