So for about the past month I could feel God urging me to read the Book of Nehemiah.
It was like I was seeing it mentioned all over the place. But I just never “got around to reading it.” Then the other day I felt down and kept saying I need to do something extraordinary with my life. You know, something to help change the world.
And then it hit me like a ton of bricks… the urge to read Nehemiah. Wow, just wow.
Here’s a short background on the Book of Nehemiah: Mehemiah was feeling grief over the ruins of the walls of Jerusalem, so he decided to take action and left his home and job to do an “impossible mission” which was to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.
So here’s this common, ordinary man who felt grief over where his fathers were buried, constantly reached out to God, and TOOK ACTION.
That’s the key right there… he TOOK ACTION and constantly reached out to God from beginning to end. God doesn’t want us waiting around for him, he wants us to pray to him and then go take action!
So go read God’s Word, Pray, and put his Word into Action AND be a Light in the World!
