SCRIPTURE: NEHEMIAH 3:1
“Then Eliashib the high priest rose up with his brethren the priest and built the Sheep Gate; they consecrated it and hung its doors. They built as far as the Tower of the Hundred, and consecrated it, then as far as the Tower of Hananel.”
At some point in this faith journey, the only thing left is to act on what you believe. This is where our dreams become a reality. It has been said, “If you do what you can do, God will do what only He can do.” There are always things we have no control over. But, most of the time there are a lot of things we can do.
Nehemiah and the Jewish people could not know if they would be successful or not, but they could get to work. They began to act on the vision God gave them. They began to rebuild the walls, piece by piece. As each family did their part, God began to do His. He gave them great success and favor. At some point in this Story faith journey, you have to act on what God asks you to do. You will need to plan and make sacrifices to see the vision come to pass. Faith is not simply trusting God to do everything. It is a partnership between you and God to see the vision come to pass. Today, begin to put action to the plans God has placed in your heart.
What are things that you can begin to do to see the vision come to pass? Begin to write a plan of action to see the vision move forward. Thing about the things in your life that need to change, and begin to get to work on them. Put forth the effort, and watch what God will begin to do.
“Jesus, today, help me move into action. Give me wisdom as I move forward into all that you are calling me to. I want to be led by your Holy Spirit as I step out in action toward the vision God has given me.”
