Nehemiah had a balanced perception of His God unlike other people of his and our time. Most people pay attention to God’s character of graciousness, loving-kindness but the same God is also God of holiness and righteousness whose law demands fair judgment. Do you know God as a great and terrible God as well?
What could we observe who God is from the way God identifies Himself to Moses? See also Ex34:6-7
What could we observe the way God looks at His people’s hypocritical way of life before Him? Isa 29:13-15
What could we learn about Lord Jesus’ attitude toward those who were hypocritical in their relationship with God? See also Mt 23:23
What is the Lord Jesus saying to you about your heart in His sight?
How do you want to respond to His voice that your prayer might be heard as Nehemiah’s?
