Taking Risks brings Rewards

Jamie Gater

leap of faithAs we continue with our series on Nehemiah, this week we begin to think about the risks that he takes in response to the destruction of Jerusalem's walls.

It's made me think about times when I've had to take a risk for God, and how that feels. It can be daunting when we step outside of our comfort zone in response to God's call, but like Nehemiah we trust that we have a God who is faithful and meets our needs.

This week I'm going to be thinking about how I can be braver and reflect Nehemiah's willingness to say 'yes' to God's exciting plans.

The king said to me, “What is it you want?”
Then I prayed to the God of heaven, and I answered the king,
“If it pleases the king and if your servant has found favour in his sight,
let him send me to the city in Judah where my ancestors are buried
so that I can rebuild it.”
Nehemiah 2:4-5
