Days of Nehemiah

Nehemiah 12:47 And all Israel in the days of Zerubbabel, and in the days of Nehemiah, gave the portions of the singers and the porters, every day his portion: and they sanctified holy things unto the Levites; and the Levites sanctified them unto the children of Aaron

How will your own days be remembered? What will be said of your leadership. In the days of Nehemiah, there was generous and sacrificial giving unto God and there was sanctification … being set apart for God to please God and not men or traditions. These days were days of holiness … days in which everyone stayed in their own role and played their part well … porters, singers, priests … there was order, no confusion. The days were days of joy … God given joy. These were also days of adequate provision …no one lacked – everyone got their portion.

Can you compare to these days …where holiness is almost never spoken of. Few things can be said to be truly dedicated to God … sanctification is not known or understood …and many lack, while others hoard their substance. There is much sighing … May the days change for good.

Your leadership will affect the times and we will say the days of Mr XXX or Mrs YYY. I only pray those days will be good days fondly remembered.

Verses for further meditation
Leviticus 22:2; Luke 1:49

Thoughts for Business and the work place
Every leader impacts the days in which he leads. By the days, the leader is known.

Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, may your holiness be seen in all that I stand for. Teach me to sanctify my all to you. 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.
