But we prayed to our God and posted a guard day and night to meet this threat. (Nehemiah 4:9, NIV)

January 25, 2018

Here in Nehemiah, Nehemiah said that in a time of crisis they had a choice where they could either pray or prepare for their enemy; however notice what they did – they chose to do both.


So often we get confused. We either pray and don’t act or we act and don’t pray. However, the truly wise thing to do is both - pray and act.


I once read that acting in the will of God is also prayer. Prayer has a divine component, but it also has a human component.


So, may we be wise…may we be faithful…may we go to God in prayer, but may we also live lives out of faith.
