Isaiah 26:18 Violence shall no longer be heard in your land,
Neither wasting nor destruction within your borders;
But you shall call your walls Salvation,
And your gates Praise
.

After hearing a report of distress in Jerusalem, Nehemiah is moved
to intercede on behalf of Jerusalem.

Nehemiah 1:
1 The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. It came to pass in the month of Chislev,
in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan the citadel,
2 that Hanani one of my brethren came with men from Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews
who had escaped, who had survived the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem.
3 And they said to me, “The survivors who are left from the captivity in the province are there in great
distress and reproach. The wall of Jerusalem is also broken down, and its gates are burned with fire.”
4 So it was, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned for many days;
I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven.
The prayer that follows in verses 5-10 is an inspired intercession
comparable to the one found in Daniel 9.

Nehemiah 1:11 O Lord, I pray, please let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant,
and to the prayer of Your servants who desire to fear Your name; and let Your servant prosper this day,
I pray, and grant him mercy in the sight of man.

Nehemiah, the comfort and consolation of the Lord,
comes to build the walls of Sanctification.

Isaiah 26:1 In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:
We have a strong city;
God will appoint salvation for walls and bulwarks.
2 Open the gates,
That the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in.
3 You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.
4 Trust in the Lord forever,
For in Yah, the Lord, is everlasting strength.

5 For He brings down those who dwell on high,
The lofty city;
He lays it low,
He lays it low to the ground,
He brings it down to the dust.
6 The foot shall tread it down—
The feet of the poor
And the steps of the needy.”
7 The way of the just is uprightness;
O Most Upright,
You weigh the path of the just.
8 Yes, in the way of Your judgments,
O Lord, we have waited for You;
The desire of our soul is for Your name
And for the remembrance of You

Psalm 77:11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
12 I will consider all your works
and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”
13 Your ways, God, are holy.
What god is as great as our God?


I missed your posts, the few days that you didn't post. I just wanted you to know that. I always am edified by your devotion to keeping it simple and in scripture.
