“Then I told them of the hand of my God which was upon me; as also the king’s words that he had spoken unto me. And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.”
Nehemiah had confidence. Not in himself alone, but confidence that God would use him to do a work among His people. You can be confident in God’s ability to work through you without exalting yourself.
When we follow God’s leading we cannot go wrong. If God has ordained it, it cannot fail. Where God guides, He provides. Where He leads, He precedes. Where He directs, He protects.
We can follow Nehemiah’s example. He told of his God given vision, and was bold to proclaim what God had shown him. Through his leadership, God allowed the wall to be built by the people in a cooperative team effort. God knew their heart, and He blessed their efforts.
What vision has God given you? What does He want you to rise up and build?
“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.”
Develop a God given confidence by relying on Him to work through you. Be bold as He strengthens your hands for His work.
Rise up. Build. Let God enable you in all that you do today.
