Joy on Purpose

Nehemiah 2:1-9, Isaiah 55:12a

Nehemiah’s high-risk job was to check the king’s food and drink for poison by doing a taste test. Because of this connection to the king, Nehemiah was in a position to organize an effort to repair the broken walls in his home city, but you can bet that it was God who organized Nehemiah’s placement right exactly where he was! Maybe you are going to some more family parties this week or are headed back to work. What are the reasons God has you in these spots? How might God use you to be a blessing this week? “You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace…”
