Nehemiah 3–4; 6
Dig In to the Bible
- Read: Nehemiah 3–4; 6
- In This Passage: Nehemiah leads a team of Israelites in rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem, which was destroyed when the Israelites were in exile. Sanballat, Tobiah, and others threaten them, mock them, and try to stop them from building the wall. But God is stronger than those who are against us, and they finish the wall in less than two months!
- Bible Point: God is stronger than those who are against us.
- Summary Verse: “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13).
- God is stronger than those who are against us. Many kids have faced teasing or bullying at school. And kids with siblings have probably felt as if their brothers and sisters were against them at times. Use this lesson to empower your kids. Help them see how Nehemiah and the team persevered with God’s strength, despite what their enemies did.
- Think About: Who or what is “against you” right now? Call on God’s strength.
Dig In to Prayer
