Ezra 1:1: In the first year of King Cyrus of Persia, the Lord fulfilled the prophecy he had given through Jeremiah. He stirred the heart of Cyrus to put this proclamation in writing and to send it throughout his kingdom.
Dear Warrior Poet,
Don’t despair over the decisions of the leaders of your day. It is easy to get fixated on political solutions to spiritual problems but remember it is God who sets the rulers in their places and He can turn their hearts to fulfill His purposes. Don’t seek a rescue in governments nor lose yourself in a lesser kingdom, seek first the Kingdom of God and trust the Lord to rule the nations.
