Nehemiah and the Israelites have finally finished building the wall. You would think that it would be time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the results! However, Nehemiah knew that just rebuilding the wall wasn’t enough. Instead, they needed to show the Israelites what it meant to serve God again. In Nehemiah 8, a priest named Ezra read the laws to the people and then they took time to celebrate everything that God did. God has done so much for us, and it’s important that we take initiative to celebrate Him!

Monthly Memory Verse: “Work at everything you do with all your heart. Work as if you were working for the Lord.” Colossians 3:23a, NIrV

Do it at Home! Challenge yourself to write down three different things you are thankful for every day this week. Share your list with your parents and friends and encourage each other to celebrate what God has done in your life.

Pray with us! God, thank you for loving us and giving us so many blessings. Help us to always have a heart of thankfulness. We celebrate everything you have done in our lives! In Jesus' name, Amen.

Nehemiah faced a good deal of opposition while he was building the wall—specifically, three men named Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem. These men constantly tried to convinced Nehemiah that he needed to stop what he was doing and that he would never finish the whole wall. But Nehemiah knew that God was with him, so he didn’t even pay any attention to them! He told them that God would help him and worked confidently until the work was complete. Sometimes people won’t like what we are doing for God. They might think that it is silly that you read your Bible at lunch or that you want to pray for them when they are sick, but we can be confident that God is with us. God will always come through for us!
