Shaking Out the Soul

Look at the list as you would the names enshrined on Ellis Island.

Nehemiah demonstrates the power of symbolic gesture in expressing outrage at the usury Jews exacted against one another. Sense the movement of the great qualities of this leader—humility, solidarity, and shrewdness in discerning plots of evil against him. At each moment of a crisis, Nehemiah turns to the Lord in prayer, shaking out his soul in the Lord’s presence, loosening any angers or fears, freeing the energies of devotion to the Lord in fulfilling the mission that “God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem” (2:12).

What are the emotions that lurk inside of you that tend to make you spiritually paralyzed? Shake out your soul before the Lord in prayer. Face opposition from within and without that would have you give up on the work that the Lord has put into your hands.
