Ruin, Rebuild, Reform
The people are beginning to return from exile. God had kept his promise: he sent them away because of their rebellion and is now restoring their home. This return was promised to be glorious, yet we'll see that it's nothing close to that. What's wrong with the people, and more importantly how will God keep his word?
The City & People in Ruins
In a time of great trouble for Israel, Nehemiah prays a big prayer with big concerns: confessing sin and hoping that God will keep his word.
Requests to Rebuild
In Nehemiah’s return to rebuild Jerusalem, God’s good hand works to provide and protect. Know that God has always been and will always be at work to sovereignly bring about His purposes, fulfilling His promises, through various means; we see this most clearly in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. God’s good hand continues to be with us as we seek to do the work of the Lord – we can trust Him and press on in service.
