How often do we take the time (some days in Nehemiah’s case) to prepare ourselves to come before God? How often do we pray before we pray? Nehemiah prayed and then he prayed.
Do we come before God with a proper view of who He is?
Do we humble ourselves, confess our sins and admit our guilt to God?
Do we claim God’s promises with confidence?
Do we ask God before leaping into action?
Where has God placed you?
