16 So the people went out and brought back branches and built themselves temporary shelters on their own roofs, in their courtyards, in the courts of the house of God and in the square by the Water Gate and the one by the Gate of Ephraim. 17 The whole company that had returned from exile built temporary shelters and lived in them. From the days of Joshua son of Nun until that day, the Israelites had not celebrated it like this. And their joy was very great.
18 Day after day, from the first day to the last, Ezra read from the Book of the Law of God. They celebrated the festival for seven days, and on the eighth day, in accordance with the regulation, there was an assembly.
May the grace of God help you to observe all that He has commanded. May your obedient desire bring the revelation of the Spirit of His Word and bless you with abundance, freedom and favour. May you find answers to prayers, breakthrough in good and bad circumstances. May you understand the call of God upon your life. May the blessing of health and wealth invade your hearts and life in service to the Lord and to those He brings into your sphere of influence. May the Lord be gracious, merciful and compassionate, not holding back any good thing for the fulfilment of His great work.
Blessings, for an amazing year ahead and this time of new beginning.
