Nehemiah 2:20 (AMP)
I answered them, The God of heaven will prosper us;
therefore we His servants will arise and build,
but you have no portion or right or memorial in Jerusalem.
In the natural this is a season when we transition from summer into autumn. It is a natural representation of what God is doing in the realm of the spirit. God is able and WILL shift us as a local assemble into the next season.
God is committed to His word. That same God is committed to us. So this month we are going to arise and participate in the miraculous work God is doing. As we arise and build, may it be unto us just like it happened in the days of Nehemiah. In Jesus’ name! Our meditations and prayers will focus on the word ARISE
As we arise to build may we see the following manifest in us. Declare each one and walk in it!
- Leaders rising up
- Everyone working
- Great team spirit.
- Facing opposition and remaining focused
- Not being distracted by anything
- Digging deeper
- Finishing in record time
- Building a healthy community.
Read the book of Nehemiah and study these scriptures.
Charge your spirit, soul and body to ARISE!
