I read Nehemiah the past week and I have seen so many things that I can learn from. One thing I want to focus on is that in God's will for our lives sometimes He calls us to things that we can only accomplish with other people.
I started thinking about things God has called me to do that I tried to do but just never seemed to work out and I realized that maybe if I had asked for some other people's help then maybe what God called me to do would have been done. If Nehemiah hadn't had his good friends and family to help him rebuild the wall then it probably would have taken a lot longer and maybe would not have been done in record time.
I love how people tried to stop Nehemiah from doing what the Lord had called him to do, but Nehemiah stood strong and continue pressing forth. He continued to fight the fight. I love that. Not only did Nehemiah know who he was in Christ, but he also had people around him that encouraged in his faith. That is so important to have in our lives. We need friends who encourage us to keep going and who support us.
There are so many things in this world that could be made somewhat better or even accomplished if we could all reach out to one another as the body of Christ and make a change. I want to make a difference and impact for the cause of Christ. I don't want to get to the end of my life and see that I didn't do anything to help anybody and I didn't try and make a change for the better. That would be a sad life in my opinion.
I want to encourage you to look for opportunities to help someone and to find out the bigger projects that you believe God has called you to and find people who will help to achieve whatever it may be. I will be doing the same. It's going to be great to see how everyone changes the world just by little things that they don't think make a difference, but do. You are a difference maker. Don't waste that. Have a wonderful day!!!
