I had not told anyone
what my God had put in my heart to do for Jerusalem.
God put something in Nehemiah’s heart! God put this in Nehemiah’s heart for Jerusalem! Nehemiah accepted that calling and went to act on it.
Someone has said, “Some men see things as they are and ask, ‘Why?’ Others see things as they could be and ask, ‘Why not?’”
Someone else has said, “Vision is a clear and precise mental portrait of a preferable future, imparted by God to His chosen servants, based on an accurate understanding of God, self and circumstances.”
Both of these quotes describe Nehemiah and his heart!
For three years we, the leaders at Crossroads, have had it on our hearts to add more space to our facility to impact the lives of youth in our community! We don’t just want to see what is and ask, “Why?” We want to see what could be and say, “Why not?” We believe God has put this on our hearts. Would you pray and ask God’s Spirit to confirm this in your heart if it really is from him?
Is there something God is putting on your heart to do for him and his kingdom? Do you have a preferable view of the future from God? If so, continue to seek him for affirmation, and ask him what he would have you do!
