Do you ever feel powerless, but wish you could make a difference? Consider Nehemiah. He had no money and no power, yet God used him to change history.
Nehemiah worked as the cupbearer to King Artaxerxes. His uncompromising loyalty and faithful service gained the king’s trust.
When Nehemiah’s brother’s came to tell him about the persecution that was taking place in Jerusalem, he sat down and wept. They told him,
“Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.” Nehemiah 1:3
Nehemiah cared deeply for the people of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. When he heard the news, he saw the need in his mind, felt the pain in his heart, and he was driven to pray.
We imagine that he thought, “What can I realistically do about this? I am just a cupbearer to the king.”
Do you ever feel powerless, but wish you could do something?
That is exactly what Nehemiah felt, and despite his powerlessness, he turned to the One who was all powerful.
Next week, we will share the remarkable story of the cupbearer whom God used to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and restore security to the city.
