Despite Fear *Ezra 3:3

“Despite their fear of the peoples around them…”
They didn’t let fear stop them from honoring God. Despite what was around them. Despite what was happening in the land, they put their faith and trust in the God of Israel and God blessed them for it.
We, too, can step out in faith trusting that God will take care of us when we do what is hard, but good to honor Him. Faith and trust in the Lord God of Israel no matter what! No matter who is around. No matter who is watching. No matter how we feel. Despite fear we also can put our faith and trust in the Mighty One.
