READ Nehemiah 4

13. God is moving in men, families, and churches. We must continue the fight. Do not get left behind, the movement needs you. Just like your favorite football team, you want them to get the momentum because when they do you know that they will most likely win the game. Let’s do whatever we can as men, women, families, churches, ministries, and organizations to help every man we know find real momentum in his relationship with God, his family and church to the ends of the earth.

There are other passages that illustrates a movement of men, but I really like Nehemiah 4. I love how Nehemiah speaks right into the situation:

“Therefore I positioned men behind the lower parts of the wall, at the openings; and I set the people according to their families, with their swords, their spears, and their bows. [14] And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.” (Nehemiah 4:13-14)

I think it is a major thing that Nehemiah specifically lists the brethren then sons in verse 14. When we fight for other men, we are also fighting for his wife and children. We are also fighting for his church and community. When we fight for another man we are touching a future we cannot see. It could be his future wife and children. It could be his future community. 

Could it be when we fight for men, God fights for us?

Then I said to the nobles, the rulers, and the rest of the people, “The work is great and extensive, and we are separated far from one another on the wall. [20] Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us.” (Nehemiah 4:19-20)

There are a lot of men reading these devotions and we are separated far from one another even if we are in the same community. We will do well to pray for a movement of men. When we do I believe that God hears us and goes to work by fighting for us. Read the following testimony of what God is stirring in the hearts of men after a recent REAL MOMENTUM Conference in Southeast Georgia before praying that God would do something similar where you live.

I am thankful today for what God is doing in our men in Toombs County. The conference spilled over into a good discussion in our Sunday morning SS class. Then we had several men stand and give testimony on Sunday night to the fact of what God had done and is doing in their lives. Monday morning we met at 6 am at the high school to pray, and discuss some things. We are on the verge of a great movement of men becoming all they need to be. I sense it. We need to forge ahead carefully and with great sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. This is not about a man or a ministry. It is about the God of glory invading men’s lives and transforming us into the image of His Son. Pray for us! Thanks!

PRAY:
Please hear our prayer for a movement of men, God! We are in great need all over the world. We need You! Use Your Word and Your Spirit to help us come to life!

We need a movement of men. This is not about a man or a ministry. It is most definitely about the God Man! @Real_Momentum App
