It is so easy to analyze, talk with our neighbor, and drag on the problems of this world, but we need people who will do something about them. It’s time to rise up, Christian.
⁃ Nehemiah 2: 2-3
“So the King asked me, “Why are you looking so sad? You don’t look sick to me. You must be deeply troubled.” Then I was terrified, but I replied, “Long live the king! How can I not be sad? For the city where my ancestors are buried is in the ruins, and the gates have been destroyed by fire.”
In this scripture Nehemiah was concerned and heart broken of the actions recently accomplished by the world around him. He began praying to the Lord that if it was his will for him to go into the city to help rebuild the wall destroyed by the fire.
I share this today because I know we can relate to Nehemiah. I know we can relate about the gut wrenching events that happen around us daily. Even the things in our work atmosphere or things our children are facing. Do something about it – the Godly way. Be the example. Be the prayer warrior that someone needs. Be the one that presses on in this world to make disciples. Say yes to Christ, and watch how he will use you.
I am so thankful Nehemiah and his followers accomplished rebuilding the wall after realizing what God had called them to do. What a beautiful example of how a messy situation can be turned into something beautiful for the kingdom of God. Although it wasn’t easy for them, they pressed on. You don’t have to rebuild a wall to do the will of God. But It is your job do what the Lord has called you to do. Be willing, and be obedient. Return the wrong of this world with good. Start today.
Rise up for what’s good. Rise up for what’s right, Christian.
