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.
