Broken lives. Broken dreams. How can we build a better life for ourselves and our families? Ask Nehemiah, God’s man to rebuild the broken walls around the holy city, Jerusalem. What was the secret to Nehemiah’s success?
Nehemiah was a man of prayer, a man with a plan, and a leader that prioritized people who were essential to the task of building a better life. He was also persistent in the face of much opposition. Nehemiah modeled a healthy balance between praying, planning, trusting God, and taking bold action.
Samuel Chadwick might have been thinking about Nehemiah when he prayed, “O Lord, make us intensely spiritual, but keep us perfectly natural and thoroughly practical.”
