Scripture Neh 2:18 And I told them of the hand of my God which had been good upon me, and also of the king’s words that he had spoken to me. So they said, “Let us rise up and build.” Then they set their hands to this good work.
Observation: That is what we are called to do, to tell others how God has worked in our life, our testimony. We should be bold when telling our testimony, knowing that God is with us and He will soften the hard hearts. It doesn’t matter what the results are, we are called to be obedient and tell of our many blessings. After Nehemiah told how God worked in his life they decided to follow him, because they knew that God was leading him.
Application: I have so much to tell others how God has blessed and protected me all of my life and it’s time to use that testimony to comfort others and draw them close to God. I think I’ve done everything to tell my story and give others my book, but maybe that is not how God wants me to do it. Instead of going to the church maybe my Lord wants me to tell strangers and those that He surrounds me with. I need to go to Him in prayer and continue to ask direction on which way He desires me to do.
Prayer: My Lord guide your servant to do all that you want me to do. Give me wisdom and discernment to tell how you have entered my life and about your mercy and grace that is available to everyone who asks. Use me as a vessel to help bring others closer to you. I love you and want to finish well, your servant.
