2013 Jesse Tree: Nehemiah

Scripture: Nehemiah 4:9-21
Event/Theme: Nehemiah
Symbol we use: Watchtower or lighthouse
Meditation: Nehemiah knew the enemy was coming. His response was to stand tall, on guard, but with his trust firmly in the Lord as their Savior. He was watching for the enemy's attack and he was prepared with weapons at hand to meet the attack. Yet he knew that victory was guaranteed because he was doing the Lord's work and so had the protection of the Almighty One.
We also need to be ready for the enemy's attack. It is guaranteed to come, but if we are living according to God's instructions then we are guaranteed to win. He has provided us with the armor we need (Eph 6:10-17). He stands with us (Rom 8:31), so how can we possibly lose when we stand with Him?
