Then I told them about how the gracious hand of God had been on me, and about my conversation with the king.
They replied at once, “Yes, let’s rebuild the wall!” So they began the good work. (Nehemiah 2:18, NLT)
Nehemiah had been in town for a few days. The people had seen him walk around. Some had probably bent his ear about the deplorable situation.
And now it was time to let them know what God had in mind.
The response was overwhelming. Vision is contagious. The people were moved and committed.
Nehemiah laid out. He showed them God could be trusted because he is God and he will keep his promises.
It’s time to step up, catch God’s vision, and commit to his plan.
His Word tells us that we will do even greater things than have already been recorded.
What will be your part in rebuilding and building for the Kingdom?
