Nehemiah looked upon the ruins of Jerusalem.
He thought back on how The Lord had put a burden on his heart for his home country, Jerusalem. He thought about how the king he was working for had graciously provided time off, men and horses, and even timber for him to accomplish his plan. He was able to look back and see God’s hand in all of it.
Then Nehemiah told the men that was with him all about it. He told them about God giving him a burden…about God preparing the heart of the king…about God providing for his endeavor.
He told them what God had done for him.
After hearing Nehemiah’s testimony the men were inspired to work. They said “let us rise up and build”.
The Israelites rebuilt the city walls.
Your testimony can be a powerful form of encouragement. Give God the glory. Tell others what He has done for you. Trust Jesus to use it to draw others to Him.
