First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read Nehemiah 8.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical — Israel gathers in an open square in Jerusalem for seven days to hear Ezra read the Bible to them and live in tents as prescribed for the Feast of Tabernacles (occurring in late September).
- Doctrinal — God uses people to help others understand what the Bible says: the highly important role of teachers and disciplers (see verses 7-9).
- Inspirational — I need to be sure to rejoice in the things of God every day, no matter my circumstances, because God designed joy to be the source of my strength (see verse 10).
