As you dust off the memoirs of this ordinary man, you will be inspired to serve the faithful God that Nehemiah served so faithfully. You will be in awe of the God who led Nehemiah to attempt extraordinary things for His power and glory, and in deep appreciation for the man who led the people of God, humbly, yet so courageously.
