The absence of a leader is a permission for disorder. There are many leaders physically present but yet absent in terms of direction. It does not take time for people to drift. If the Spirit of God could go on holiday for a minute …if God could slumber for a micro second … it is enough for the devil to finish his evil craft.
Indeed, we need holidays and times of rest – but be sensitive to the possibility that it takes a few days of lack of direction for things to go amiss. Nehemiah had to go to the King …perhaps to report progress to his sponsor …only a few days we learn. But enough for fresh troubles to brew.
I pray the presence of God never departs again from your heart. I pray the Holy Spirit is never grieved in your life. I pray your life is always filled with praises of the most high God. Always keep being filled with Him … leaving no room for something else.
Ephesians 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.
Verses for further meditation
1 Peter 5:8; Luke 22:12
Thoughts for Business and the work place
Leaders make their presence felt even when physically absent.
Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, keep me vigilant. 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.
