God is Our Defense
This week I have been reading Nehemiah chapter 4. Nehemiah was the governor of Judah who was on a mission to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem that had been torn down. Nehemiah was a great man of God who believed in prayer and fasting and he was able to motivate the people of God to work together to rebuild the walls (1). In Jeremiah 4:6 we are told that “the people had a mind to work”.
The enemies of the people of God were upset about their progress and attempted to bring the work to a halt. The people of God were not moved; instead vs.9 reveals to us their response to the enemy.
Nevertheless we made our prayer unto Our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.
As we set out to do God’s work to minister to and help our community, we can be confident in that we are not defenseless. There will be opposition, challenges, and obstacles when we walk in God’s purpose for our lives. We have to know that we are triumphant in Christ! That in Him there is nothing impossible to those that believe.
In our continuous prayers and our steadfast faith in God we can do great things in him!
Psalms 3:3 But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory and the lifter up of mine head.
