Today's reading: Nehemiah 2:9-20
The Book of Nehemiah tells the story of the rebuilding of the wall of Jerusalem led by a Godly man named Nehemiah. Nehemiah wasn't born into a royal family; he wasn't highly educated; he wasn't wealthy; he wasn't exceptionally skilled or gifted in a particular area. He was a common, ordinary person--who had a right relationship with God. As a result, God raised up Nehemiah and used him to accomplish great things.
Although we've only read two chapters of Nehemiah so far, what have these two chapters shown about how God uses ordinary people to accomplish His work? What has this Book shown you about how God could use you?
