Nehemiah 1-2 (The Daily Walk Bible).
Since we read through Nehemiah’s prayer today, our devotional suggest that we bask in certain Biblical promises, and gives us the following passages to consider:
Jeremiah 33:3 “Thus says the LORD who made the earth, the LORD who formed it to establish it—the LORD is his name: Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.”
Matthew 7:7-11 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!”
John 16:24 “Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.”
1 John 5:14-15 “And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.”
Matthew 7:7-11 is probably the most abused passage of this group. The good things here aren’t a gold watch, a new Porsche, or a big mansion! The good things are the things that are in accordance with God’s will, things that bring spiritual joy, and things that help us get a better understanding of and a closer relationship with God. May all our prayers seek the “good things” that God promises to give us!
