Dear Faithful Partners,
I want to encourage you with what I feel God is speaking to the body of Christ today from the book of Nehemiah. Here we see a story of God’s mercy and grace over and over again. Nehemiah fervently mourned, fasted and prayed for the wall to be rebuilt in Jerusalem.
God called Nehemiah to do four things: return to his first love, reunite the people of God, rebuild the wall, and restore the people of Israel. I believe God is calling us today to do the same thing in our own lives. He wants us to return to our first love. The bible says in Matthew 6:33, “…seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” He is EVERYTHING!
In order to reunite the people of Israel they had to begin to live holy lives. Anything that defiled the temple of God had to be cleaned up or moved out. It started in their homes… no idolatry and no compromising. To rebuild the wall Nehemiah posted half the people as guards and half as builders. They all stayed FOCUSED on building the wall and went to work. The wall was built in record time, 52 days. There was great opposition for fear the children of Israel would have security, become self-sufficient, and gain political power to overtake the enemy.Rebuilding the wall was a sign of God’s blessing and proved HE was fulfilling the promise of restoration to his covenant people. Stay FOCUSED on the things of God. If God is for you who can be against you! Don’t give up but keep building a wall of protection and peace around your family, lives, ministries, jobs and our nation.
Thank you for your faithful support and love offerings. Know that as you continue to give, God is a God of His Word! He will create a mighty harvest from the seed you sow. He is faithful to perform His word in your life and is mindful of you and everything you need. He is working on your behalf to bring you to a place of victory and freedom!
Because of you, we are able to continue to minister in local churches, inspiring conferences and through our powerful Women Warriors ministry. We are reaching out through missions saving the lives of children from sex trafficking, those who are homeless, counseling and providing education for children in Honduras.
Let us stay FOCUSED!
TOGETHER we are making a difference!
