This is an odd statement. God has not forgotten any, nor does He have the memory of men – He is omniscient …I sense Nehemiah leaves them in the hands of God. He sees that the priesthood has been defiled, by the accommodation of Sanballat and other acts of betrayal, but he does not bring them to trial himself. He leaves justice to God who is merciful to act as best suits Him. Leaving judgments in the hands of God is so important … it tells God we fear Him and honor Him as God. God knows how to deal with His enemies …He sees even thoughts that are yet to be hatched in our minds and all our motivations. He knows who did what, and who was deceived and who is the deceiver.
God has great mercy available but also is fearful in administering judgments. Do you remember the sons of Korah and the many judgments which seem excessive to us … but God also overlooks what He wants to overlook – again without having to give any explanations to us. God is God – remember this and do not take actions that are meant to be taken by God.
1 Chronicles 16:14 He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.

Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, give me grace not to seek revenge on any … let vengeance belong to God. 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.
