“Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, join us there. Our God will fight for us!” verse 20 [NIV]. Much as Nehemiah physically prepared for attacks from the enemies, he fully trusted God for victory. He never relied on his feeble hands and human plans. Our trust in any other person or object will let us down, but in Christ we are victorious both physically and spiritually.
Meditate on verse 20. How are you going to apply it to your life?
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, help me to be well prepared for any eventuality. However, I do not trust in any other object, not even in
my prayers, but in You alone. You alone will fight for me and give me victory. Amen.
