A Dirt-Mover or a Difference-Maker?

I. Feeling Futility

II. Being a Difference-Maker A. _______________________________________________________________ (Nehemiah 1:3) They said to me, “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.” (4) When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.

B. _______________________________________________________________ (Nehemiah 2:2-5) I was very much afraid, (3) but I said to the king, "May the king live forever! Why should my face not look sad when the city where my fathers are buried lies in ruins, and its gates have been destroyed by fire?" (4) The king said to me, "What is it you want?" Then I prayed to the God of heaven, (5) and I answered the king, "If it pleases the king and if your servant has found favor in his sight, let him send me to the city in Judah where my fathers are buried so that I can rebuild it.”

C. _______________________________________________________________ (Nehemiah 4:3) Tobiah the Ammonite, who was at his side, said, “What they are building—if even a fox climbed up on it, he would break down their wall of stones!” (Nehemiah 4:10) Meanwhile, the people in Judah said, "The strength of the laborers is giving out, and there is so much rubble that we cannot rebuild the wall." (Nehemiah 6:2-4) Sanballat and Geshem sent me this message: “Come, let us meet together in one of the villages on the plain of Ono.” But they were scheming to harm me; (3) so I sent messengers to them with this reply: “I am carrying on a great project and cannot go down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and go down to you?” (4) Four times they sent me the same message, and each time I gave them the same answer.

III. Leaving a Lasting Legacy (Nehemiah 6:15-16) So the wall was completed…in fifty-two days. (16) When all our enemies heard about this, all the surrounding nations were afraid and lost their self-confidence, because they realized that this work had been done with the help of our God.
