08 Feb Nehemiah 1:3

3 And they said to me, “The remnant there in the province who had survived the exile is in great trouble and shame. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates are destroyed by fire.”

The exiles had returned to Jerusalem, but the walls and the gates of the city had been torn and burned down! Picture your house with no walls, or going to school with no clothes! Really embarrassing, right? That’s what it was like for the exiles. No protection- no covering for their city. Are you building your “city wall” in God through prayer and obedience to Him each day?
