Prayer in Action, Day 42

Plan in place. Read Nehemiah 13:12-14.

While the people had gone through the time of disobedience that Nehemiah addressed in yesterday’s verses, now he is putting a plan in place to make sure that the disobedience doesn’t continue. While he is doing these things and ensuring that God’s will is being followed, he calls out the specific obedience and and asks that God remembers him.

When we know what obedience to God should look lile, and we do it, we should celebrate and give God the glory. He is deserving if the obedience and also the glory for the obedience. Are we thanking God for helping us to be obedient? Are we calling out our moments of obedience, not for our own glory and recognition, but for His.
