Nehemiah 2:18 Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; as also the king’s words that he had spoken unto me. And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.
Nehemiah knew that it wasn’t him or his wisdom that was accomplishing things for God. It was God who had placed His hand on Nehemiah. Not only did Nehemiah know it was God but he announced to the people that it was God.
His announcement gave them confidence. They were now motivated to get up and do God’s will. We need to be aware of the fact that it is God’s power and work in our lives.
When we realize that it is not just a coincidence but God, we will have confidence. We will know that God is at work and will be encouraged to do His will.
