How To Do Great Things For God: part 1


Has God placed something great in your heart for you to do?

Are you overwhelmed by the challenges that are trying to stop you from accomplishing the purposes of God for your life?

If you are, emulate Nehemiah who did fulfilled his God's purpose for his life by rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem since that was What God had placed in his heart to do in Jerusalem (Nehemiah 2:12) by following these steps:


Pray
Nehemiah Was fasting and praying before God. (Nehemiah 1:4)


Nehemiah Prayed to Confess His Sins
Nehemiah prayed and confessed The sins that we the children of Israel have sinned against You. My ancestors and I have sinned against you for we have been corrupt and broken your commandments. (Nehemiah 1:6-7)

Therefore pray and ask God to forgive you your sins so that you can have a clean slate as you start doing what God has called you to do since you will need His help for the Bible tells us that The Lord’s hand is not shortened that it cannot save you, or His ear heavy that He cannot hear you. But your iniquities have separated you from your God and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He will not hear. (Isaiah 59:1-2)

Pray for Favor
Nehemiah prayed for favor from the King because he was going to ask him for leave of absence from his job as the King's cupbearer, he was also going to ask for a passport so that he could travel to Jerusalem and wood for the rebuilding process. (Nehemiah 2:4-8) 

Nehemiah prayed, O Lord I ask please listen to the prayer of Your servant and let me prosper today. I pray that you will give me mercy in the king's eyes. (Nehemiah 1:11)

God heard his prayer and granted him favor because, he not only received what he asked for, he was also given armed escort. (Nehemiah 2:9) 

Therefore as you pray ask for favor from all those you will interact with as you do what God has called you to do. These might include immigration officials if you will also need a passport like Nehemiah and bank officials if you will need a loan. 


Pray the Promises of God
Nehemiah prayed, Remember O Lord Your Word which You gave Moses saying that if we return to You and keep Your commandments You will gather us from where You scattered us because of our sins. (Nehemiah 1:8-9)

Therefore as you pray remind God of some of the promises in His Word that pertain to your situation.
