As we look at what is going on in our country, our hearts are broken by the brokenness of what we see. Why do we, as God’s people, seem to have so little impact on our world today? God open our eyes to see what we must strive to accomplish in order to see change that will glorify him.
Scripture: Psalm 90
Sermon Text: Nehemiah 1
My Next Steps
Point to Ponder: Dependence on God isn’t weakness, it’s true strength. Prayer is dependence on God that takes you beyond human possibilities!
Treasure to Share: “O Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor…” (Nehemiah 1:11).
Action to Take: This Independence Day weekend, take a step back to recognize your dependence on God. What in our country, in the church, in your family, or in our community is causing your heart to break right now? Don’t panic. Pray about it! Pray for an opportunity that God would use you to be part of the solution and plan as if you expect God to answer your prayers. Reread Nehemiah’s prayer in chapter 1 to jumpstart your thoughts if you need help getting started.
