Nehemiah 1:10 Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.
Nehemiah knew who he was and who the people of God were. He knew that they were the servants of God. He knew that they had been redeemed by His great power and strong hand.
As Nehemiah asks God for a blessing and favor he reminds God of who he is.
I read this and think that I must remember that I am His. I belong to God who has redeemed me by His great power and strong hand. I am His servant. I am more than a servant, a son!
He loves me and has promised not to leave me. I can trust Him today to meet my needs and direct my path. I love the God of heaven and want to remember that and live like it is true.
I want to wrap my head around these great truths. I want to live for God and not forget that. I want to know who am I. I want to remember that I am His.
