Sounds of URGENCY vibrated throughout the atmosphere. A compelling work desperately laid dormant, as though no one could see the importance. An inner city had been reconstructed, but stood defenseless as no boundaries or measures of protection surrounded the position. The enemy lurked throughout the mix of so many people in the city of Jerusalem, even to the point of almost fitting in. But, word had reached the ears of Nehemiah and a burden began to burn.
Walls of protection was the necessary ingredient missing within the renovation process of God's chosen land. Nehemiah's vision and zeal leaped from his spirit onto others. And now, the people are in the process of rebuilding the walls of the city of Jerusalem. It would have been difficult and backbreaking work for those involved, but it was necessary if they were to be safe from the attacks of their enemies. And, if they were going to worship God as HIS law commanded. As they labored to build the walls, they faced constant opposition to their work. They became weary and discouraged, but they never stopped working.
Urgency once again echoes throughout the atmosphere. This echo has a different sound because there remains an entire generation in need of deliverance. Today's society has perfected the achievement of secular gain, but remain in lack concerning eternity. Family members, children, and neighbors are serving a devil that truly has blinded them from the truth. These are our beloved people. Do we set back and allow them to be swallowed up in defeat? Or, do we burn within our spiritual soul with an uncontrollable burden. Please, let the Nehemiah generation step forward! Remember, during this intense work, of saving our people, there will be seasons of discouragement and tiredness but, continually remind yourself that Nehemiah never stopped working until the job was completed. The burden is yours…fight for it!
