Random thoughts, inspired by Nehemiah…
This really is the season to rebuild. Not just talk about it, but really do it! The old season for laying the foundation of the temple was great… good memories and all. But come on guys, there’s a job to do. REBUILD!
God does not intend to destroy us. He allows our accomplishments to burn out so he can give us something far better. So in this season we have a choice… We can throw a tantrum about God letting all our efforts fail. Or we can lift our heads, & start recognizing the weather pattern of what God is doing. He allows us to be shaken for a purpose. He will protect us, but all the things we hold so dear have to go. Shaking is not comfortable for anyone, but he will protect us. He does not intend harm.
Those old things that look so burnt out & broken now… he can rebuild, restore, & make new.
These are the things I will do & I will not leave them undone. (Isa 42:16)
