Nehemiah was one of the great leaders in the Bible that was used by God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. If we would look at Nehemiah’s life, he was greatly used by God. It started with a burden to rebuild the temple which he then lifted up to prayer to the Lord. When he saw the right time, he stepped out of faith and from that, the Lord has just used him mightily. Some time we just really need to step out of faith. That’s faith it’s faith, there is always that part where there is uncertainty. But if we know who our God is and we have covered it with prayer that we can rest assure that the Lord will always be faithful to us. He can use us mightily for this work.
