Facing Your Future With Confidence

The Faith Alive bookmark (side one) says:

“The God of heaven will give us success; therefore we His servants will arise and build…” Nehemiah 2:20

1. RELY ON GOD! “…the joy of the LORD is your strength.” Neh. 8:10


-Fatigue – “the strength of laborers is giving out…” Neh. 4:10
-Failure – “…we cannot rebuild the wall!” Neh. 4:10
-Frustration – “…there is so much rubble…” Neh. 4:10
-Fear – “Also our enemies said, ‘Before they know it or see us…we will kill them and put an end to their work!’” Neh. 4:11

“So we continued to work…” Neh. 4:21

3. REMEMBER WHAT’S IMPORTANT! “Don’t be afraid! Remember the Lord is great and awesome. Fight for your brothers and your daughters and your homes.” Neh. 4:14

“So the wall was completed…in fifty-two days…with the help of our God.” Neh. 6:16
