Nehemiah, The Man for the Job!

In Nehemiah 1:4 he wrote "and it came to pass, when I heard these words that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of Heaven!

Nehemiah had a great job! As cup bearer for the King of Persia, you could say "he had it made" But when he heard of the distress of the Jews he called on God with a burning desire in his heart for them. The walls in Jerusalem had been torn down, and the gates had been burned. He knew what God wanted him to do, but he had one big problem, he couldn't leave town without King Artaxerxes permission. He kept praying and because God is who He is, the king was given great favor for Nehemiah,so that when he explained what was going on, he not only agreed to his request, he even appointed him Governor, and gave him "builders permit" to rebuild the walls of the city. Nehemiah's heart was broken for the people of Israel! he could have stayed in his cushy job but he chose to seek God for the answer. Over and over in the Bible you will find how God rescued His people. Here is something else for you to hide in your heart, He still rescues people today! He loves us with an unfailing love, all He wants us to do is look to Him! He is God Almighty, El Shaddai! No matter what you are facing, you are not alone. Nehemiah faced opposition, but it didn't matter. God was in control! oh by the way, the walls were rebuilt and new gates too!
