2.Survey of needs
3.Have a vision
4.Go to work
These are the 4 steps we can learn from the story of Nehemiah as he lead the people in rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem. This was a daunting task but Nehemiah was faithful to God and determined to see this wall rebuilt. You can read Nehemiah’s story in the book named for him in the Old Testament.
It sounds simple, but with this guideline Nehemiah and his workers accomplished rebuilding the wall around the city of Jerusalem. It was hard work, there were few workers, and there was opposition; but they didn’t give up. Staying faithful and focused they got the job done.
We as modern-day Christians have work to accomplish too. We, like Nehemiah, should always pray first for God’s guidance and help and be faithful to the task that He has given us. We should consider all the needs that should be met. This will give us a vision for the work to be done. Then we should get to work doing what God has lead us to do. With faith and determination we too can accomplish great tasks for God.
