Right With God

Today's reading: Nehemiah 9:1-38

Nehemiah 9 gives us a glimpse of the Israelites observing a time of fasting and confessing to God. In addition to the humble, submitted posture and approach of the people, I was drawn to the picture of worship that was displayed throughout this chapter. The people set aside a day to come together to recognize God and to confess and spend time in fellowship with Him. The day begins with the reading of God's Law, followed by a time of confessing, worship and a looking back and recalling of God's constant goodness, love and provision, as well as a remembering of the Israelite's history with God through both obedient and disobedient times. The Israelites then conclude this special time with the signing of a covenant in which they pledge to wholeheartedly follow and serve God

How often do you look back and think about how God has walked alongside you through ups and downs, and not abandoned you even when you've been disobedient? Why is it important for us to remember how God has worked in our past, and to have a conversation with Him about it? What stood out to you most about the Israelite's day of confessing and worshipping, and why? Tami
