Topic: THE BROKEN WALL 3
3 And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire.
4 And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven.
Last week we considered the kind of walls surrounding the home which must be kept fortified and not weaken, cracked or broken. Today we are looking at how to rebuild the broken walls.
- Determination: Just like Nehemiah had a strong determination to rebuild the broken walls of Jerusalem, you need determination to rebuild the broken walls in your home. If you lack determination, you may give up at the instance of strong opposition from the enemies. A look at Nehemiah 4, showed a strong determination of Nehemiah and his men in the face of opposition, with one hand they built, with the other hand they held their spears to defend themselves against Samballat and Tobiah their enemies. So you’ve got to be determined.
Unity: Nehemiah alone of course could not rebuild the broken walls, so he raised a team of united men who joined him in the task as recorded in Nehemiah 4:6 which says “So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work”. The role of unity in the family cannot be undermined, couples need to be united to keep their home guarded and secured both physically and spiritually. The two parties must be united in one voice and in one spirit to rebuild the broken walls in their home.
Prayer: This is the most important step in rebuilding the broken walls, it should be the starting point just like Nehemiah did. From our text above, when Nehemiah heard of the news of the broken walls of Jerusalem, the first thing he did was to pray
and even fasted, the prayer paved way for him to accomplish the task. Beloved, prayer is the foundation upon which every other thing is built, as you begin to pray for your home consistently, things begin to fall in place, peace, love, joy, money, unity e.t.c will begin to come into your home, while the devil, his agents, strangers, and their evil seeds like hatred, agony, trouble, quarrel, poverty, infidelity, sickness e.t.c will gradually depart from your family.
Beloved, as you pray, fast along and declare God’s word concerning your life and family from time to time, I tell you, it is a tested and guaranteed way to rebuild the broken walls and keep your home secured. God bless you
* Father, help me to rebuild the broken walls around my home in Jesus Name.
