  • What feels heavy in your life right now? How might that heaviness be understood as opposition against God’s mission for your life?
  • Are you more tempted to rely on self and forget to pray or are you tempted to quit and forget to work? How does Nehemiah’s example of praying and working encourage you specifically? 
  • As you read verse 14, what do you feel most convicted of needing to fight for: Brothers/Sisters in Christ, your children and the next generation, your marriage, or your church? How does remembering God’s greatness and awesomeness fuel that fight?

1: Amidst opposition—We pray (Nehemiah 4:1-9).
2: Amidst discouragement—We remember (Nehemiah 4:10-14).
3: Amidst difficulty—We trust (Nehemiah 4:15-23).
