Displaying God

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Nehemiah 6:15-19

A determined and focused effort by Nehemiah and the Jews resulted in the wall and its gates being completely rebuilt in only fifty-two days. Quite an impressive accomplishment considering the run-down physical condition of the city, the low emotional state and lack of unity of the people upon Nehemiah's arrival, and the strong and steady opposition that Nehemiah and company combatted throughout the rebuilding process. But it's precisely because of these difficult circumstances and the way in which Nehemiah and the workers responded that God gets the glory. At the end of the day, God's greatness, power and control are recognized by all.

"And when all our enemies heard of it, all the nations around us were afraid and fell greatly in their own esteem, for they perceived that this work had been accomplished with the help of our God" (vs. 16).

How much thought do you give to the fact that people are watching and making an assessment about God through ALL of your actions--in the good times, low times, stressful times, trouble-filled times? What's one thing you can/will do this week to display God and His goodness to others? Tami

Tami, Thanks for reminding me I are being watched.
This is my prayer that God will use me in some way to show others God and His goodness.

As a Grandpa I need to be very aware as to how I react to situations in real life around my grandkids we all know they are always watching and listening. It is my prayer to try and live the example I profess as a Christian and try to be a good husband ,father and grandpa. We know we all fall short ,but it is so important to ask for Gods help, and be in the word every day .

Thanks Tami! for your daily lessons
