    This chapter spells out the certain history of God's people. Knowing the previous books of history of God's people, I can see it in short review in this 9th chapter.

    Verse 33~The Israelites acknowledged that the reason they were suffering was because they had done wrong and not because of any fault on the part of Jehovah God.
  • Brianna vs. 17-20
    Our God is such a merciful God. With the Israelites, despite their numerous sins against Jehovah God and his representatives this highlights how God still cared for them and kept his promise to Abraham. Our situation today is similar. We live in a wicked world, yet God hasn't abandoned us. He is giving us time to repent before he has to execute justice.

    Verse 8~Jehovah honored his promise to Abraham and this is why he is described as righteous in his choosing the nation of Israel and giving them the Promised Land. Jehovah expects us to honor our promises.

    Nehemiah did a complete history of the Israelites in this chapter. He was quite balanced in his narration to the congregation of the Jews after the wall was completed and now time for rejoicing. He underlined the kindness of God. "for thy great mercies' sake thou didst not utterly consume them, nor forsake them; for thou art a gracious and merciful God." Our God is gracious and mighty.

    Our God is long-suffering and forgiving, praise His holy name.

    Boy, I tell you, if you read the 9th Chapter of Nehemiah, you don't need a sermon to follow it! THOSE verses are POWERFUL! And I was listening to praise music as I read it, which made it even MORE powerful! WHEWEE!

    Nevertheless, stop thinking "What is God going to do TO ME today" and start thanking Him for all He does FOR you. AMEN.

    I thank God for his grace and mercy, because without it none of us would be here.
  • The Lord has given them another Savior,Jesus Christ to deliver them and the rest of mankind,from the hand of another enemy, The Devil.
  • The describe our creator in our continued existing by preserving and sustaining us. Day by day

  • Garry Martin for verse 6
    Thou, even thou, art LORD alone thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, What does the words Lord alone thous hast made... " mean. It says ALONE.

    It is such a relief to me, when having done wrong, I am forgiven. I recall times when I have been caught speeding and the Officer grants me grace, sends me off with a warning to be more careful, and pardons me. Taking this to a higher level, my sins put the Son of God on the cross and to think that He died to pay my penalty and granting me favor in the sight of justice is mercy unfathomable. I am a ward of grace and mercy for which I am eternally thankful. Praise be to Him for His pardoning grace - such unselfish forgiveness is unknown among men.

    May the Lord help us to be faithful.

    anon, God wants us to confess the sin or sins to Him so He can hear us tell them to Him, but also that we can hear them also ! He delights in hearing His children confess their sin and repenting !

    In this chapter, I am humbled by The Almighty Father's love, patience, compassion, forgiveness, long-suffering, and Justice. He never gives up on His anointed and children; eventhough we hurt His Spirit when we lost our way in sin. He is Holy and Righteous. I worship Him for who He is! The I Am that I AM, The Same yesterday, today and for ever more, Ancient of Days, and the Provider for all people. Omnipotent, Omniscience, and Omnipresent God! What a mighty God we serve!!!

    I am a newly saved Christian. My whole life I have been around the church but I had no faith, until recently. Anon., I think that when we confess ourselves to the Lord we allow the Holy Spirit to come back into our lives in the forms including living in godly standards. I have been very blessed with a wonderful wife who kept praying for me.

    if we drift away from living by godly standards,why is confession to God necessary for us to return to living by godly standards?
