Nehemiah 13:5 And he had prepared for him a great chamber, where aforetime they laid the meat offerings, the frankincense, and the vessels, and the tithes of the corn, the new wine, and the oil, which was commanded to be given to the Levites, and the singers, and the porters; and the offerings of the priests
God does not want His people to lack anything… but to instead be blessed and provided for. He does not want Levites, singers and porters engaged in other commercial ventures … rather, he has arranged for them to be provided for – so they can minister to God. But what happens when the space to store that which should have been shared to them, is used as a chamber for the devil’s agents. Where there is no safe storage, something is stolen or easily misdirected and the temple workers begin to lack. When there is lack, there is a distraction – they begin to hunger and to beg or find something to do to earn enough to feed their families.
Lack is not God’s plan. Behind lack is a conspiracy with darkness. Remember the agenda of the devil. He comes to steal, kill and to destroy. Any and everything that is good and attractive is targeted by him. There are days when we should say “No” to the devil’s conspiracy … to see that you do not have the provision and goodness God has stored for you.
Psalm 31:19 Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!
The word of God is forever settled. Satan must bow to that word and clear out of the place where your goodness is meant to be laid up. Glory be to God.

Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, get thee behind me – you wicked one, there is no place for you in my life. 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.
