The walls of Jerusalem were broken down.  None of the remnant had taken the initiative to repair them.  God placed it on the heart of Nehemiah to make this happen.  It always amazes me that God often has to move someone from where they are at to where they need to be to accomplish his will.  Was there no one in the remnant that could take leadership?  Is it possible they had just become too complacent with the way things were to make the change?  It would seem new leadership was needed to change the ingrained culture of complacency.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for creating catalytic leaders who will move at your command from where they are at to where you want them to be.  Thank you for placing it in peoples heart to follow these leaders.  Thank you for creating present day churches lead by some of these leaders.  I love you Lord.  Amen.
