One mind

Nehemiah 8: 1 “And all the people gathered as one man at the square which was in front of the Water Gate..”

Imagine all the people of Israel gathering as one man! In other words, ‘one mind’, this is unbelievable and incredible, such a large gamut of people gathering in one mind, (not to watch cricket match) but to listen to the Word of God, is nothing but the work of the Holy Spirit.  Is anybody listening today?  Someone has done the homework of fasting, praying and weeping and therefore the Spirit of God had moved the hearts of people to listen to the voice of God, otherwise such things are impossible.  The man who prayed was NEHEMIAH!  If leaders, fathers, mothers and believers pray and fast like Nehemiah then we can expect great things like the one we such read.

Can we just check out on how Nehemiah prayed: “I sat down and wept and mourned for days; and I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven.(Nehemiah 1:4) This was no short, fleeting prayer but one that lasted for many days…..this message is prophetic…Some of us expect miracles and wonders after 5 minutes of prayer, we want our family, brother, sister to repent with just half hour prayer but here Nehemiah had invested solid prayer, most important look at the oneness among the people which is the fruit of prayer. 

This morning I spoke about oneness in mind in our school assembly because we see too much of strife in the media, parliament, highways and almost everywhere, so much so we have forgotten about being in harmony, therefore I preached the word from the following scripture which was awesome: 2 Corinthians 13:11”Finally, brethren, rejoice, be made complete, be comforted, be like-minded, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.” Isn’t this verse lovely?  Did not Jesus say, ‘Blessed are the peace makers?”  Peace and oneness are byproducts of prayer.  If there is strife and division at home, office, and in your heart, pray for the Holy Spirit to bring about peace.  Amen.
