I’m picking up on a series I started before Thanksgiving. In rebuilding the walls of our lives after devastation from the aftermath of divorce, addiction, sickness, or whatever the difficulty, I have mentioned several things you need. I encourage you to go back and read the first 3 parts of this.
As I was preparing for this portion, a phrase from Nehemiah 3 jumped out at me. As they were rebuilding the gates, the Scripture says “they sanctified it”. This means they set their work apart to their Lord.
If you are going to rebuild and make a full comeback, you MUST set yourself apart from what used to be. You can’t hang with the old crowd. You can’t go to the same places. If you do, you are setting yourself up for failure. That’s fine if you want to live in failure, but God has more and better for you.
The devil may have you convinced that you are not worth anything, but you are worth so much…so much that God would send His Son to die for your sin and conquer death, Hell, and the grave Christ on your behalf. God made you for more! Set yourself apart (as difficult as that may be) and walk in the victory God has willed for you!
