Everyone in His Business

Nehemiah 13:30 Thus cleansed I them from all strangers, and appointed the wards of the priests and the Levites, every one in his business;

Everyone has a part to play. A unique destiny. There are different timings. Some will mature quickly while others will not. The timing, location and nature of our businesses are all unique … our preparations are also very different. When everyone has found his calling – not just Nehemiah, then God has given to the community a leader. The leader does not grab space, he enables others to be what they are meant to be. Many want things too quickly … others refuse cleansing and separation. A leader will be able to guide, push and pull … achieving in his life and in the life of others, the needed separations and the relocations needed for all to find their business. When the environment is made right, everyone can find a unique space and occupy a role that God had preordained.

The walls are built again when the people have been rebuilt …not the buildings. The people are rebuilt when God has separated evil alliances and impure ways of worldliness and sin — away from His people. The walls are rebuilt when each has rediscovered their unique callings and are prospering in their own unique callings.

Romans 12:11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;

Verses for further meditation
1 Thess 4:11; Prov. 22:29

Thoughts for Business and the work place
Leaders do not seize space instead they empower others to find their space

Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, give us leaders that will empower us to prosper in our unique roles. 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.
