While everyone being busy with their plans and ideas to achieve more gains in the new open land of Jerusalem, Nehemiah did the opposite thing! And again this is not only about the history to remember in the restoration era, instead, this is a great reminder for believers at the end times when perilous times will come.
There will be lots of reasons to always put our needs in the first place of everything, but Jesus asked His disciples to do the extra mile, do something more than ordinary people would normally do, take the extra step than people in general will do.
Jesus said: “And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two Mat.5:41.”
People like to say that the extra mile is never crowded, there are no traffic jams along the extra mile. And indeed, only the power of God that will enable and empower believers to walk the extra mile with a divine purpose.
Let’s prepare ourselves to learn from the life story of Nehemiah and be ready to give a good response for what the Holy Spirit will quicken in our heart.
