Nehemiah - Sept. 19th 2021
When God calls us to Himself, He does so for a very specific purpose. God will never do something great through us until He does something significant in us first. He wants to use someone whose heart is completely His. Nehemiah was a normal, everyday, average guy who develops a burden in his heart for the brokenness he encounters. He has a radical faith and a courageous soul, and determines to do what God is calling him to with great faith. Throughout his story, Nehemiah exercises personal commitment and has a profound ability to adapt as both a practical and spiritual leader. His heart breaks for broken walls and he does something about it. Does God really have a purpose for you? If you give yourself to Him, He will plant a burden inside you that will grow into a holy discontent – you will identify a broken wall that wrecks you – and you just have to be a part of it. If you let God have your whole heart, He will mess with your life, and like Nehemiah, He will use you to impact the world in ways you could never even imagine.

Grace Group Questions
Week 2: Engaging Your Burden.

1. What’s something that bothers you? Not just a pet peeve—something you see as a real injustice or need.

2. Read Neh. 1:4-11. Pastor Dan shared that this time of prayer and fasting was four months long! If you were to take an honest assessment of your LIFE with GOD, how would you rate your Being vs Doing? Why is prioritizing being with God over doing for God important as we begin to engage broken places in our lives and community?

3. Read Nehemiah 2:5-8, 11-16. How can Nehemiah’s example of establishing a clear vision and careful planning help us as we start to engage broken places?

4. Why is passion for our burden important? How can it help us invite others? How can you encourage others to believe that God can empower them to do something that matters?

5. When engaging broken places, we’re called to prioritize being with God over doing for God, seek clarity, plan carefully, and invite others passionately. How can you do one of those things this week?

Prayer is the place our burdens are transformed into
passionate plans.

Father, thank You for the passions You’ve given each of us. Help us to use these passions to serve You and others. Shape our vision for the work You would have us do and guide us as we plan for the future. Allow others to see our passion, so they might be inspired to join us in engaging our world for YOUR glory. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
