Week 6: Miracles, Victories and Success

Nehemiah 1:11 NLT “O Lord, please hear my prayer! Listen to the prayers of those who delight in honoring you. Please grant me success today by making the king favorable to me. Put it into his heart to be kind to me. In those days, I was the king’s cup-bearer.”

To be a conqueror we have to have a battle.

The way we respond to the battles in life will greatly determine the miracles we experience. Nehemiah wept, mourned, & prayed. Sin brings curses—God will not be mocked. God wants us to be in the world, but not of the world. Value what God values. Pray and ask God to help you delight in honoring Him.

Praying for success is not a bad thing if you are trying to further God’s kingdom!

“The way we respond to the battles in life will greatly determine the miracles we experience.”. Lately, the song “Yes I Will” has come to my mind, especially the lines “Yes I will lift you high in the lowest valleys” and “Yes i will sing for joy when my heart is heavy”. Praising and worshipping God in the midst of our battles we experience is a choice. There isn’t anything wrong with mourning and grieving in the midst of these battles as we see that Nehemiah did this…but he also prayed. We see the same with Job. “Though he slay me, yet will i trust him” Job 13:15a KJV. They didn’t go without their moments of grief, but they didn’t stay there either. They instead chose to glorify God in the midst of their respective storms and/or battles.

Delight can be defined as great satisfaction and joy that gives us great pleasure. An example is we delight in GODS goodness and take joy in our salvation, while we live content with what we have and wait upon the LORD to give us the desires of our heart.
