My prayer in posting this is for you to be inspired to read and meditate on each chapter of the book of Nehemiah yourself! I pray meditating on God's Word becomes an essential part of the life of every person at The Point Church! (Psalm 1:1-3). Below is my SOAP meditation from the second chapter of the book of Nehemiah
S "I also told them about the gracious hand of my God upon me and what the king said to me. They replied Let us start the rebuilding. So they began this good work." - Nehemiah 2:18
O The hand of God was on Nehemiah. Nehemiah recognized God’s hand at work in his life through the amazing favor he had gained with the king and used the example of God’s favor to rally the people to action.
A God has His hand upon our church. We have seen this through our merger with Cary Christian Church, the number of people finding Christ at The Point and how God has doubled our attendance this year. We must use what God is doing to rally his people to action to get to the message of Jesus to our city!
P Father, I pray you would keep your hand of blessing upon our church. Help me to recognize what you are doing, share that with others, and rally them to action to retake our community for Jesus! In Jesus name. Amen.
