21 Then, there at the Ahava River, I proclaimed a fast; so that we could humble ourselves before our God and ask a safe journey of him for ourselves, our little ones and all our possessions. 22 For I would have been ashamed to ask the king for a detachment of soldiers and horsemen to protect us from enemies along the road, since we had said to the king, “The hand of our God is on all who seek him, for good; but his power and fury is against all who abandon him.” 23 So we fasted and asked our God for this, and he answered our prayer.
Adonai answers the prayers of the people who show him trust. How do we show our trust, by humbling ourselves, seeking His authority and not ours, and standing firmly on His Word. God protect me so I may always be an ambassador for you.
