Rally the Troops

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Nehemiah 3:1-32

After arriving in Jerusalem, Nehemiah privately surveys the state of the wall and its gates before communicating his thoughts and plans with any of the Jews. (Neh. 2:17-18). But once he does share his heart and the direction he has received from God with the people, they eagerly offer their support. They are fully aware of the broken-down state of their city, and they know the situation is not good. But until Nehemiah arrives to issue the challenge to rebuild and head up the effort, they aren't of the mindset to rally together to resolve the situation. They didn't even realize it, but they were in need of someone to step up and be a leader--someone to motivate and encourage them to do what they knew was necessary and right. So when the people rally together and begin the rebuilding, which is what we see in Nehemiah 3, the enthusiastic, all-in work effort is impressive and effective!

How might you "rally some troops" for God this week and/or in the coming month? Who do you know that you can encourage to step up and serve God more fully? How does encouraging and urging others to serve, in turn, encourage and motivate you to get even more active for God? Why is it important and what are the benefits for us to work together as we serve God? Tami

Tami, I have thought about your questions in this study and I am not a leader,but a follower and yes I like to encourage children, pastors and others because they no doubt have had times of discouragement,doubts and those who would want to destroy their efforts.

I want to be used of the Lord to uplift fellow believers.

I would like to welcome others who are better at communicating their thoughts to join in this fabulous blog's comment section.

Tami, keep doing your best, I (and) I am sure others appreciate your labor of love for the Lord. I KNOW that you are pleasing the Lord too!!
