God’s priests are taken care of by God. We do not work for a living as saints …God is our source, our provision and so we work in obedience to Him. This is a completely different paradigm of work. Today many combine cut throat emotional intelligence with zeal to stay ahead where God has asked them to withdraw. But how can we obey God to withdraw from situations that earn us comfortable incomes. We must trust God to provide and be able to lean on Him fully.
There is a sad state of backsliding when that which belongs to God’s priest shave been diverted to make room for satan’s boys. The priests have fled for cover and gone to the fields while the chamber that should house their comforts has been assigned to the devil’s agents, in this case, Tobiah’s gang. Nehemiah begins to make the needed corrections to the correction. It begins with the understanding that the Levites are on the fields instead of being in the temple. I do not mean we should live and sleep in church, but there is a strange situation when those called by God are unable to fulfill their call because of strange displacements orchestrated by modern day Tobiahs. The result is that the people scorn the work of God as the roles have been usurped by business opportunists and political artists mocking the vision of Nehemiah to rebuild the kingdom and restore kingdom standards. Nehemiah gets an accurate perception of what has gone wrong and the outcomes.
Do you sense people mocking the work of God around you? Where are the Levites, the custodians of God’s truth?
2Kings 17:32 So they feared the LORD, and made unto themselves of the lowest of them priests of the high places, which sacrificed for them in the houses of the high places.

Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, open my eyes to understand what is going on around me. 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.
