Daily Bible Reading: Nehemiah 1 – 3
Verse of the Day: Nehemiah 1:4 – “And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days; and I fasted and prayed before the God of heaven”
Nehemiah had a wall to build. Coming to Jerusalem, Nehemiah expected opposition so he came prepared for it. He was a prayer-filled leader, and can teach us many truths.
From this book, one can learn four important lessons (and many others also) about leadership. These are vital to be a Kingdom Building Leader for God in this world today.
A KBL must expect opposition to the work of the Kingdom. He must secondly, keep a positive perspective of what God is going to do, thirdly, be prepared to fight the battles in the prayer-closet, and finally, stay close to other Christians.
Prayer: Lord Sabaoth, direct me in the path of being Your KBL today – grant me the power to battle in prayer for You. Amen.
