They Rebuilt It

Nehemiah 3:1-12

Edward Kimball was a Sunday school teacher in Detroit in 1854. From Kimball, who built a relationship with a teenager named D. L. Moody, a timeline of people coming to faith and becoming obedient to the Lord can be traced all the way to Billy Graham. One obedient step in the life of Kimball traces itself to millions of people. Estimates claim that Billy Graham preached to 210 million people in 185 countries over the course of his life.

In the story of Nehemiah, we see a similar story. Nehemiah’s obedience to God’s call, in this case the rebuilding of the wall, initiates a chain reaction. Others begin to rebuild portions of the wall. All of chapter three is a celebration and testimony to the fact that others picked up the vision God had given to Nehemiah. The rebuilding of the wall was a work brought about by community, and one who inspired community.

What is God calling you to and where do you see God working in others?

    Thanks Teanna for this inspiring devotional. Thru this week, God has given me a vision that we need to build His wall again around America. We need to think of His Word as the bricks or blocks of the wall and the mortar is our prayers to Him and His answers that cement the blocks together to make a strong protection for our lives and for even our country. We have let Satan destroy this wall and it has left us unprotected. We need to have the courage to rebuild no matter what people (or Satan) do to try to stop us. May we dive into God’s Word and then empowered by prayer expand the walls of His Kingdom on earth.
