A new charter has the seal of the priests, the Levites, princes and leaders. The major families and clans are represented … there is not just a buy-in but a public and ceremonial acknowledgement that a new rebirth of a nation was being witnessed. The excitement and communal commitment creates a climate for action and desire to make progress that is backed by a momentum of resolve and joy to bear any associated pains.

New beginnings are exciting and inspiring to witness when all the elements are in place. There are false starts that are destined to crash too … and even when all the principles of visioning are evident, there could still be some challenges lurking ahead. Nehemiah has brought his community to a new and major milestone envisioning a people fully aligned with God’s law and obedient to the minutest detail. The intent is laudable and the elders subscribe to the new charter after weeping for sin and after being convicted by scripture. Unity is awesome … and there is a shared resolve to change.

Unity in a new vision can be a compelling force for change, especially when there is a moral basis.

Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, do something new and fresh in my life and for others through me. Use me to bring hope to communities. Amen

As Nehemiah’s wall was built,  so will we see a reconstruction in all that may appear in distress and in waste. Nehemiah trusted and feared God, putting his faith in the Almighty whose strength is limitless to exceed all our expectations. Look out daily for Nehemiah’s Wall in 2015 and do invite friends to subscribe to the free email or social media posts.

I am praying someone with a burden to be used by God in building will receive a fresh vision and get the job done.

And because of all this we make a sure covenant, and write it; and our princes, Levites, and priests, seal unto it.

What is the conclusion of the matter. Nehemiah calls for a new commitment, a fresh unity, a new agreement … a binding agreement … a pledge publicly made to follow God. Unity is important before this stage can be reached. A divided home is chaos, but a divided nation and church is significantly worse in mayhem. Princes, priests, leaders and priests all agree that we need a new shared charter … and this is put in writing.
I have seen organisations breath fresh life into their projects and enterprises by having sessions of self examination ending in a new charter or vision. Getting buy-in is important and gradually ensuring all are on the same page on the issues, what needs to change and the TO-BE . At the end getting all to publicly sign on the new vision is great for cohesiveness and smoother takeoff of the new vision.
Note, it is not enough to just get people to sign the covenant, there is agreement on the background and context as well as all the issues. ‘Because of all this” is an important clause … as it provides the basis for the signatures. Obtaining seals by intimidation, flattery or painting a deceptive context can seem to produce a unity for action but in reality sets the stage for an illusory transformation.
2Co_6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
