Today's Inspiration: The way of a man is not in himself, it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps. Jeremiah 10:23. Unless the Lord directs your steps, whatever plans you have are bound to fail. David always connects himself to the source who knows the answer before hand and will not act till the Lord commanded him to do so.
All plans need to be confirmed by two or three voices. We do not need to reason and analyse as God knows the answer.
Nehemiah was confident that his plans were directed by the Lord therefore he was not moved by any threats even if it means they came from the authorities. All of God's plans never fail.
The enemy does not destroy only the fruit but the whole tree together with its fruit so that her name will not be remembered. V19.
Likewise, we not only need to weaken the enemy's strengths but to destroy him completely so that his heads will not be lifted up again. It's the Lord of hosts who judges righteously and who test the mind and the heart. V20. Therefore, let us trust Him to go before every battle we fight that all maybe well with us. With the Lord there is might and strength. Only He has the answer to our cries. God be praised.
Prayer: Lord my hope is in you that I might be a green olive tree that is fruitful unceasingly. Let my leaves be green eternally. Let no anxiety defeat me in times of drought nor will I cease from yielding fruit. In You I will not be forsaken. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
