Nehemiah 2:17-18 NIV
[17] Then I said to them, “You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace. ” [18] I also told them about the gracious hand of my God on me and what the king had said to me. They replied, “Let us start rebuilding.” So they began this good work.

Because you say……Nehemiah knew this was a good work because Gods hand was on him. God calls us to build his kingdom – with him and in his way and we will find joy and fruitfulness as we listen to him.

When we walk with the Lord in the light of his Word
What a glory he sheds on our way!
While we do his good will, he abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
