Today’s reading Nehemiah 1-3
Nehemiah 1:10 Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.
As Nehemiah prays He recognizes before God who he is and who his people are. They are the Lord’s servants and people. They have been redeemed by the Lord’s great power and by His strong hand.
Recognizing who we are will help us know what we can do! It will keep us on track. So often we think that we are going to God to get Him to like us, to get Him to do things for Him when we already belong to Him.
What can we ask that would be bigger than what He has already done? We are to learn to identify with Him. We are to know who we are and what He is doing in us!
If I know who I am then I should act like who I am and yield my life to the Lord Jesus to do with me whatever His will is!
