Living a life of eternal significance








Neh 1:1-5

3 Nehemiah’s in the Bible Ezra 2:2; Neh 3:16

Nehemiah means the comfort of the Lord. May whatever you are awaiting for in God bring comfort in Jesus name, Amen.

Luke 4:17-19; Acts 10:38 Jesus found His place in destiny.

John 9:4 Everyone is chasing/pursuing something. You must work whilst it is day.

Luke 2:6-7

Jesus was born in a manger, but He did not end up in a manger. What God has given you is enough.

Exo 4:9

What you have is sufficient for your assignment, don’t focus on the limitation.

Neh 6:15; Psa 143:7; 102:2

Nehemiah enjoyed grace for uncommon speed. May the Lord answer you speedily.

Neh 2:18; Gen 24:12

May the Lord send you good speed in Jesus name, Amen.

1 Kings 18:46

The hand of the Lord gives supernatural capacity.

Isa 58:8

Receive the anointing and grace for speed in Jesus name, Amen.

5 things that made Nehemiah live a fulfilled life of significance:

Neh. 1:4-5 He was a man of burden and passion. He received common information and made it uncommon. Burden drives men to make impact. Stop chasing the mundane passions.

Matt. 14:14; Dan 6:10-11; 1 Kings 19:18

Your greatness is in the burden that fuels your passion. No one can influence this generation if you remain with the generality. Daniel dared to be different from the rest of the people.

Eze 22:30

Nehemiah had a burden to rebuild the broken walls. What burden do you have in your heart to impact your generation?

Neh 4:6 The right relationship

God created man for relationship, not for isolation.

John 5:7 Pray to God for the right relationship. No man is an island.

1 John 4:20 If you have a relationship with God, it must reflect in your relationship with men too.

Ecc 4:9-10 Your network determines your net worth.

Mark 2:1-8 The sickman had the right relationship. Jesus saw the faith of His network (friends) and released his deliverance/healing.

Neh 2:2-4 Sacrifice. Nehemiah was the cupbearer yet he fasted. Although in the midst of plenty (food and drinks), he sacrificed his appetite for the burden that he carried. Be a person that is full of a burden for change.

Psa 50:5; Jer 15:16, 1 Tim 4:13, 2 Tim 2:15

This sacrifice is beyond material, financial etc but more spiritual sacrifice in prayer, bible study, seeking the mind of God for any matter.

John 3:16 God gave us the ultimate sacrifice of His dear son, Jesus.

Opposition will arise when you are occupied with a Kingdom assignment. Rejection is only a redirection.

Neh 4:16-17 Opposition comes when you are on the way to making impact.

Opposition can manifest as enemies (eternal, internal and external)

Neh 4:1-3

On your way to making impact beware of secret enemies within, which sometimes might also be secret sins which you need to get rid of.

2 Thess 3:2; Psa 7:9; 71:4; 140:1

God will deliver you from all your enemies.

God is seeking available men and women.

Neh 1:4 Consistency in strategic prayer. Strategic prayer gives a believer stamina through challenges. A prayer lifestyle is a winning life. Nehemiah sought God in prayer (4 months) for strategy and direction.

Strategic prayer is consistent prayer through the lens of God’s word. Strategic prayer changes the prayee until things begin to change. Consistency in prayer guarantees results. Mastery can only be gained through consistency.

Heb 11:6; 1 Cor 4:2; James 5:14; Prov 21:1 God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Don’t give up in prayer, God is expecting you to stay consistent in strategic prayer.

 Reasons why we pray:

Luke 18:1; 1 Thess 5:17 It is a command to pray.

1 John 5:19 Prayer is an instrument for warfare and intercession.

Isa 66:7; Luke 2:28-30 Prayer is one of the authorised platform for growth, birthing destiny, and transformation.

Jer 33:3; Eph 3:20-21; Isa 1:18 Prayer is a tool of fellowship and communion with the Father.
