Chris Jones continues our exploration of the book of Nehemiah. Having wept, fasted and prayed for Jerusalem for four months, Nehemiah can no longer hide his feelings from the King. When face-to-face with his trusted servant the King enquires as to what is causing Nehemiah so much pain, a question which presents Nehemiah with a moment of opportunity.
As we explore this extraordinary passage, we find that God has been preparing Nehemiah by placing him in a position of influence and by revealing His plan through prayer. Today we can learn much from Nehemiah and how God used him to rebuild His city and His church.
