REBUILD – START WITH GREAT DECISIONS

 

The words of Nehemiah son of Hakaliah: In the month of Kislev in the twentieth year, while I was in the citadel of Susa, Hanani, one of my brothers, came from Judah with some other men, and I questioned them about the Jewish remnant that had survived the exile, and also about Jerusalem. They said to me, “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.”

Nehemiah 1:1-3 (NIV)

 

HOW TO REBUILD WELL –

(what we learn from Nehemiah) 

 

1. Let your heart BE BROKEN

 

When I heard these things, I sat down and wept...

Nehemiah 1:4 (NIV)

 

2. Prioritize SPIRITUAL LIFE 

 

...For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.

Nehemiah 1:4 (NIV)

 

3.  Resist FEAR and FATALISM

 

“Remember the instruction you gave your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, but if you return to Me and obey My commands, then even if your exiled people are at the farthest horizon, I will gather them from there and bring them to the place I have chosen as a dwelling for My Name.’”

Nehemiah 1:8-9 (NIV)

 

If my people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

4. Don’t let the start, STOP YOU

 

...“If it pleases the king and if your servant has found favor in his sight, let him send me to the city in Judah where my ancestors are buried so that I can rebuild it.”

Nehemiah 2:5 (NIV)

 

When He saw the crowds, He had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.”

Matthew 9:36-38 (NIV)
