(Read Judges 5:5-9)

Historically, there is an association of donkeys and /or mules with rule and kingship. Go back and read Judges 4 about Deborah. In this passage, Deborah was a prophetess and the leader (judge) of Israel, before they had any kings on the throne. What did she tell the military commander Barak to do? (Judges 4:6-7). What was his response (vs. 8-10)? Why was this a disappointment to her? What does Judges 5:1-10 say about her view of godly leadership? As a judge it is important that she was a leader. In vs. 9 and 10 what was the transportation of the leader? Whose heart is with those who lead well? How about you? Are you a leader ‘riding a white donkey’, a symbol of peaceful, willing leadership?

Read Nehemiah 6:15-7:3; 12:27-30; 31; 38-40; 42b-43. It was nearly 100 years earlier that the walls of Jerusalem were destroyed. How long did Nehemiah pray about it after he heard the walls were broken? (see ch. 1 and 2). How long did it take to repair the walls? What does that tell you about God when He gets involved in a broken situation? Can you trust Him in your brokenness? What was the attitude of the enemy when they realized that the walls were now repaired? Why did they have that response? With most of the opposition now isolated and out of power, whom did Nehemiah put in charge of Jerusalem? Why was he chosen? How was the wall dedicated? As you prepare for church tomorrow, get your heart ready to celebrate with song, and praise the great God who comes to your aid in repairing your broken down walls.

Read Nehemiah 2:19; 4:1-23; 6:1-4; Ephesians 6. Who are Sanballat and Tobiah? Why were they angry with Nehemiah? What would they lose if he was successful? What was their tactic? How did Nehemiah respond to the ridicule of these outsiders? What does vs. 10-12 say about opposition from insiders within the city of Jerusalem? What was Nehemiah’s response to the workers who were discouraged and afraid? (vs. 13-14). Why did he tell them not to be afraid of the enemy? They did not ignore the threat. But they did not pursue the enemy. What did they do (vs. 13-23). Today, as people of peace, we do not pick up arms. But the Bible says to put on your spiritual armor (Ephesians 6). Why should you put on spiritual armor? Who is our enemy if we are to put on spiritual armor rather than physical armor? The people did not pursue their physical enemy. And neither should we. We should be prepared to ward off the spiritual enemy. In your life today examine who you are considering to be the enemy. Remember, we wrestle not against flesh and blood. Who is our enemy? (Ephesians 6:12-13). Ask God to strengthen your hand and your heart when you feel intimidated or attacked. Stay focussed on the job God has for you to do.
