Nehemiah: Day 7

Weekly Truth


Today's Text: Nehemiah 2:17

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the gospel with us wherever we go.

This week we will memorize the key verse for the book of Nehemiah.

So I said to them, “You see the trouble we are in. Jerusalem lies in ruins and its gates have been burned. Come, let’s rebuild Jerusalem’s wall, so that we will no longer be a disgrace.”
—Nehemiah 2:17

    May God give me strength, wisdom, and guidance to build a wholesome relationship with Him.

    As precious women have typed, I pray for us all to have our hearts, minds, and eyes open as Nehemiah’s had been. For he saw rubble and saw a direction for creation. For he saw potential instead of destruction. For he saw hope instead of distress. For he had hope and faith in our Father instead of focusing on how much people are against them.

    Lord thank you that means matter how in disrepair we allow ourselves to become, you stand waiting patient and unchanging to invite us back in to renew and refresh our souls. May we walk faithfully in your grace today and always.

    Lord, please give me Nehemiah’s boldness as I tackle the challenges in my life. Amen!

  • My study Bible says, “Spiritual renewal often begins with one person’s vision. Nehemiah had a vision and he shared it with enthusiasm. Often God uses one person to express the vision and others to turn it into reality.” This is exactly what we are suppose to do as well, share our visions, encourage and inspire others so that in the action of teamwork we are accomplishing God’s goals. I have learned so much already from the first week of this study and looking forward to moving on in it.

    Thank you, Lord, for your mercies that are new every morning, that allow us the opportunity to rebuild what has been broken down.

  • Ana Lisa Johnson

    Lord, thank you for the strength to endure and to accomplish hard things. You sustain and empower me!

  • Rebuilding one brick at a time, one step at a time, one moment at a time… through His grace and to His glory. With a thankful heart ~Amen!

    There is certainly a time to stay and rebuild. And there are other times when one has to pull up stakes and move on. Build anew. Fresh start. Leaving the ruins behind. I’m thinking of the many in the Scriptures who were called out. Abraham. Moses. Peter. Paul. Praying for discernment for all of us who are seeking God’s will in regards to rebuilding in the ruins or building anew elsewhere. Remembering His Words “Come, follow Me.” Wherever. Here. There. “Thy will be done.”

    • Sarah

      Even moving forward to a fresh start requires sorting through a rubble pile and rebuilding where one has been knocked down in spirit or strength. Either way, Jesus is the Way and provides the strength and courage and hope.
      I pray for all who face the challenge.

  • Brooks LeeLaCombe

    Amen. Let it be.

  • Lynne Stephenson

    Applying this to my own life as I think about the need to rebuild certain aspects of my own life.

  • Bx Belshaw

    Lord thank you for the opportunity to rebuild. Amen

    • Brandi

      Yes! Thank You Adonai! Because of You, we will be called the builders of broken down walls!
