The God Who Rebuilds

Episode 17

Today’s Episode

Perhaps you’ve wondered whether God can restore and rebuild what’s impossibly broken. One of my favorite aspects of the book of Nehemiah is that it is not a book about building but a book about rebuilding! Even though Jerusalem was broken down because the people had turned their back on God, God’s covenant of love with His people prevailed! This truth carries into our own day even more so through Jesus. He is passionate about rebuilding and restoring lives! 

In this week’s episode we’ll continue to see that we’re not called to do God’s work alone. All different types of people labored alongside the wall side by side. And perhaps my favorite element of this week’s passage is how even the rubble in our lives can’t ultimately stop us when God is with us and we’re doing what He’s called us to do. Join me for the second episode in our 6-episode collection on the book of Nehemiah!
