Blessed Pilots

Nehemiah 11:2 And the people blessed all the men, that willingly offered themselves to dwell at Jerusalem

Matters should be committed to the hands of God. This they did by blessing them as they commissioned the first settlements. Nobody was forced to do anything … but the selected people willingly offered to go knowing every pilot has risks. In life, we should learn to commit things to God’s care and help. He is our help and we have no other. The blessing of the elders is important …so also is the buy-in of the people.

As we stage out pilots (test stages of implementation), we need to invite God to get involved in our matters by praying and seeking His face for methods and obtaining His blessing. These are stages when we need to hear God well … God may want to bring corrections and new thoughts to influence our approach. The prayer of blessing upon our plans is very crucial especially when we want to succeed through many unpredictable barriers and hazardous risks. The blessings of the Lord truly maketh rich and adds no sorrow.

Verses for further meditation
Gen 22:17 ; Proverbs 10:22

Thoughts for Business and the work place
Leaders use pilots to get implementation started. Pray the blessings of God over your pilots and the team leaders.

Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, you are our help. Help our new beginnings. 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.
