The Power of Negative Thinking

From Series: God's Work, God's Way, Volume 1

Nehemiah 5:14-6:9  (ID: 1725)

Nehemiah’s reverence for God and compassion for God’s people gave him the ability to reject anything that would hinder his progress. Alistair Begg teaches that Nehemiah’s practice of prayer prevented him from pride, his dependence on God kept him from cluelessness, and his assurance of God’s calling deterred him from distractions. Similarly, we must reject internal or external threats that interfere with God’s work and calling on our lives.

Nehemiah's Generosity

14Moreover, from the time that I was appointed to be their governor in the land of Judah, from the twentieth year to the thirty-second year of Artaxerxes the king, twelve years, neither I nor my brothers ate the food allowance of the governor.
