Nehemiah was a man Who had a heart for God and for what God wanted done. Nehemiah had a close relationship with the Lord God, and here we can read about God's Character in action.
"Stand up and praise the LORD your God, who is from everlasting to everlasting." "Blessed be Your glorious name, and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise. You alone are the LORD . You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship You.Nehemiah 9: 5,6
are the LORD God, Who chose Abram and brought him out of Ur of the Chaldeans
and named him Abraham. 8 You found his heart faithful to you, and you
made a covenant with him to give to his descendants the land of the Canaanites,
Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Jebusites and Girgashites. You have kept your
promise because you are righteous.
warned them to return to your law, but they became arrogant
and disobeyed your commands. They sinned against Your ordinances, by which a
man will live if he obeys them. Stubbornly they turned their backs on you,
became stiff-necked and refused to listen. 30 For many years you were
patient with them. By your Spirit you admonished them through your
prophets. Yet they paid no attention, so you handed them over to the
neighboring peoples. 31 But in your great
mercy you did not put an end to them or abandon them, for you are a gracious and
Nehemiah the governor, Ezra the priest and scribe, and the Levites who were
instructing the people said to them all, "This day is sacred to the LORD
your God. Do not mourn or weep." For all the people had been weeping as
they listened to the words of the Law. 10 Nehemiah said, "Go and
enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing
prepared. This day is sacred to our Lord. Do not
grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength." Nehemiah 8
A brief Bible study: Nehemiah re-tells all of the great and mighty deeds of Love that the Lord God Almighty does for His children. Over and over again, his children turn their back on Him, they turn away from His laws of life for them, and are not grateful for His relationship with them. People get stubborn and rely on themselves, and by doing this, they get into trouble. When the trouble is too much for them to bear, they call on God to help them, and time and time again God comes to their rescue. God is truly faithful, patient, compassionate and eager to save.
However, the most important thing for our lives is to not be on a roller coaster up and down, with and without God, but Instead, to have a long line of continuum, growing in Him, in relationship with Him, with our life in His laws by His Spirit, and when we are filled with His Holy Spirit, then we can fulfill all that He has planned for us, and we will not go astray too far.
