Nehemiah 1: Nehemiah Prays for His People

Published

on

Nehemiah and the remainder of the Jewish exiles lived in the lands of the Persian Empire. Even though Nehemiah was a foreigner, he had a job of great honor, serving King Artaxerxes as a cupbearer. By the time of the exile’s end, some Jews had already returned in two groups with Zerubbabel and Ezra.

Yet the city and its walls remained in ruins. When the Almighty has a plan, He sets aside certain people to carry it out. Nehemiah was one of those servants who willingly renounced his stable life in the king’s court to lead back the Israelite remnant.

And that was how the city was rebuilt in 52 days after having lain in ruins for almost a hundred years.

Despite a great deal of opposition, the walls and gates were restored, and the nation took on a new life.

The clothes and the branches were a kind of welcome offering to the Messiah. This form of greeting was common when kings returned home, in triumph, from their battles. Those who had a better financial situation took off their cloaks and spread them along the way, while the poor adorned the ground with branches from trees. As the King entered the city, everyone offered their best to honor him.

Genesis 20: Abraham and Abimelech

Published

on

She is my sister. In a moment of weakness and fear, Abraham did not reveal that Sarah was his wife. By doing this, he not only put her at risk, but God’s entire project for humankind. With Abraham and Sarah, the Lord intended to create a people, through whom the Savior would be born.

Because of this, He did not allow Abimelech to touch her.

This teaches us to always have the courage to tell the truth, even when we could be adversely affected by people’s reaction.

“White lies” and “half-truths” will cause damage. This is why our response should be a clear yes or no.
