Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build.

Nehemiah 2:20

The God Of Heaven, He Will Prosper Us

We here at GMBC are looking forward to a very prosperous New Year.  Much planning and preparation have been accomplished in 2005 on Phase I of our Master Plan, and we are looking forward to those plans becoming a reality in 2006.  We have had the blessing of seeing the God of heaven prosper us this year and we are looking forward to more of the same in 2006.  When Nehemiah and the children of Israel committed themselves to “rise up and build”, they also encountered much opposition as well. [See Nehemiah 2:19]  Nehemiah’s response to the opposition is both confident and encouraging when he said in Nehemiah 2:20, “Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: . . .”  I believe the God of Heaven will continue to prosper us here at GMBC in 2006 as He always has.  Let’s look forward to the opportunity as His servants, to arise and build for His glory.
