The Power of United Purpose

 

Nehemiah 4:1-6

 

Our text today reveals;

 

1. A powerful miracle.

 

  - The opposition that Nehemiah and the Jews faced was too fierce for them to overcome it in their own strength.

 

  - When you consider the Jews constructing the wall out of rubble, it must have been a powerful miracle.

 

  - Many different people worked with the abilities they had to use, and God used their efforts to build the wall.

 

2. A powerful method.

 

  - They were united in their purpose.

 

  - There is so much to do, and there is so much that we can do, if we will just do it together.

 

  - Another part of a powerful method is a vision of what we are to accomplish.

 

  - In times of discouragement and fear, we need to be reminded to turn to God through prayer and through His word.

 

  - Philippians 4:8

 

  - Luke 18:1

 

3. A powerful mind.

 

  - We can implement our ministry plans if we have a mind to work.

 

  - Nehemiah 4:6

 

  - Ecclesiastes 9:10

 

  - How often are we that eager to do the Lord's work? What a difference it would make!
