I was on my way to our church meeting on the first Sunday of the month armed with a teaching series I had prepared days before. As I approached the car park of the church meeting venue, I heard a gentle nudge in my spirit that I should speak about something totally different. I was to speak about “The faith that accomplishes”. In my personal devotion time, a day before, God had spoken to me personally and extensively, encouraging me from the book of Nehemiah. He showed me a man whose main qualifications for the job were a deep, heart-felt concern for God’s people, complete trust in God and the willingness to endure persecution and hardship to see God’s will fulfilled.
Nehemiah had faith that accomplishes.
