What is your power source....job, family, church? When that power fails, does your world stop? Do you feel like you are left in the dark and are afraid of the next step?
I was recently reminded from a man named Nehemiah where to find the real power source - one that won't fail.
Nehemiah (2:2) went to the king. Right away the king noticed Nehemiah was depressed. The king called it 'sadness of heart.' Nehemiah became afraid because to be sad in front of the king was not allowed!
With respect, Nehemiah decided to be honest with his pain and talk to the king. The king asked "What do you want?" In a heartbeat, Nehemiah did three things:
- He trusted God
- He obeyed God
- He asked for wisdom from God
"And because the gracious hand of my God was upon me, the king granted my request."
Do you have an unfulfilled dream? Have you acknowledged God as your Power Source and Giver of Gifts? Replace your fear and 'sadness of heart' through trusting God, obedience and wisdom.
May his gracious hand be upon you and grant your request!
