So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two days. (Nehemiah 6:15 KJV)

Nehemiah had a burden to change the city of his fathers by rebuilding the walls. He received the burden when he enquired of the state of things in Jerusalem. Today I want you to know that resources follow vision, when the king saw that Nehemiah was troubled, he enquired of him and gave him resources to fulfill this dream.

As Nehemiah began the work, much opposition arose from Sanballat and Tobiah. They mocked him, their mission was for the work he was doing to never be fulfilled. With all kinds of plans they tried but Nehemiah didn’t give up.

Today it’s your turn to rebuild broken walls. It is your turn to leave a mark in this world. You carry something unique for this generation. Those in the future must hear your story and be encouraged by it. When you give up owing to the opposition, you surrender future victories others would have enjoyed because of your victory. You must live to leave a legacy!

One day at a time, rebuild a section. Put up the gates and secure the city! You have the ability to do it. You carry a special seed for this world. If you do that which you are called for, you will be happier in your journey through life.

I pray for you today, that the distress leaves your life and that you overcome every opposing voice to your dream.

Declare this,
Today I choose to fulfill every dream one step at a time. I ignore every opposing voice and I position myself for the favor and resources that follow every dream.
