The Fifth and Final sign we see in the life of Nehemiah’s is he always points the people back to the Lord: In (Neh.4:14) just before he tells the people of God to fight, he says to them “Remember the Lord.” And that’s really what today’s leaders should be doing in the body of Christ. They should consistently keep Jesus at the forefront of the ministry. Because we face a relentless Devil it is imperative that we remember what God has done for us; we must remember how he brought us out; how he saved our soul, and how he made us whole. We must remember the victory he brought us the last time we faced our enemy; we must remember how he brought us out of the last trial because it’s going to help us when we face the next trial. For some of us we must remember how he brought us from the brink of despair; we must remember how he delivered us from drugs and alcohol; we must remember how he delivered us from the crack pipe; we must remember how he delivered us from the grips of an abusive relationship; we must remember how he raised us up off that sick bed when the doctors said there is nothing else we can do; we must remember how he brought us out of financial ruin. We have got to remember the Lord. The Psalmist said “I would have fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living; you see he was remembering the Lord. In fact, the best way to dispel fear is to remember the Lord; when you feel a little discouraged remember the Lord; when it seems all hope is gone remember the Lord. The best way to bring forth praise in the midst of a bad situation is to remember the Lord. A mission minded leader will always point us back to the Lord because the mission that God has called us too is often tough and the challenge is great, and remembering the Lord has a way of bringing us back to our senses.
God Bless You.
