Notes From The Cove - Page 5

Weekly Bible Verse: Isaiah 54:10

Our weekly Bible verse comes from Isaiah 54:10 (NIV):

Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.”

 

Lord, we ask that you presence go before us and be with us today. We thank you for your perfect peace that gives us comfort and rest. We thank you for your great compassion on us. Forgive us of any and all sin in our lives. May we come to you with a humble heart in need of a Savior.

Will Graham to Co-host National Day of Prayer Broadcast

Will Graham, vice president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, believes in the power and importance of prayer. He’ll co-host the National Day of Prayer Observance Broadcast on Thursday, May 7. He is calling on believers to pray for America on the National Day of Prayer (NDP) on Thursday.

He’ll be co-hosting the National Day of Prayer Observance Broadcast with NDP’s task force president, Kathy Branzell. The event is scheduled for 8-10 p.m. ET on a variety of networks (details below).

>> Watch the National Day of Prayer broadcast, live from the Billy Graham Library, Thursday from 8-10 p.m. ET

“I’m honored to serve as the co-host of this year’s National Day of Prayer observance telecast,” Will Graham tweeted recently. “Please plan to join me (and believers across the country) on May 7 in concerted prayer!”

As vice president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), Graham shares the Gospel at evangelistic events worldwide. Since the coronavirus outbreak, he’s continued to encourage people through online platforms, like Thursday’s National Day of Prayer telecast from the Billy Graham Library.

With the 2020 theme “Pray God’s Glory Across the Earth” based on Habakkuk 2:14, this year’s prayer event serves as a reminder of the promise, “for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.”

“The Bible places great importance on prayer: Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you (Luke 6:28). Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer (Romans 12:12),” Will Graham said in his devotional book, Redeemed: Devotions for the Longing Soul. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God (Philippians 4:6).

“These aren’t merely pleasant suggestions. I view these as commands to follow in our daily Christian walk.”

Established in public law in 1952, the National Day of Prayer is observed nationwide on the first Thursday in May. Will Graham’s grandfather, Billy Graham, strongly advocated for President Truman to create such an observance, and his family has participated in many of the events since.

With unprecedented challenges from the coronavirus crisis and economic shutdowns, Thursday will look very different from past years’ gatherings, which usually include 60,000 local community events. NDP coordinators have planned to mobilize millions in unified, public prayer for America while following recommended social distancing measures through digital platforms. This year’s virtual observances have the potential to become the largest prayer “gathering” in U.S. history with millions praying togetherindividually.

Take a look at the following ways you can participate in the National Day of Prayer Observance Broadcast: 

  1. Watch on the following TV stations: GodTV, Daystar, NLC and BrioTV
  2. Listen on the radio through Moody and Bott Radio Networks
  3. Join us on BillyGraham.org or BGEA’s Facebook page

“Unprecedented times call for unprecedented prayer,” Branzell said. “[We] may have more prayer—and more ‘pray-ers’ than ever before.”

However, it’s crucial for believers to recognize that prayer isn’t just necessary in challenging circumstances; it’s an everyday journey.

“Prayer is eternally important, on a group (corporate) level, but also for your individual walk with God,” Graham said.

About the National Day of Prayer
The National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by the Continental Congress’ proclamation in 1775 setting aside a day of prayer. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.

Never Let Your Guard Down

By: Patty Nicholas-Boyte

 

 

 

Nehemiah 4:16-23 (NASB)

From that day on, half of my servants carried on the work while half of them held the spears, the shields, the bows and the breastplates; and the captains were behind the whole house of Judah.  Those who were rebuilding the wall and those who carried burdens took their load with one hand doing the work and the other holding a weapon. As for the builders, each wore his sword girded at his side as he built, while the trumpeter stood near me.  I said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “The work is great and extensive, and we are separated on the wall far from one another. At whatever place you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us.”

So we carried on the work with half of them holding spears from dawn until the stars appeared.  At that time I also said to the people, “Let each man with his servant spend the night within Jerusalem so that they may be a guard for us by night and a laborer by day.”  So neither I, my brothers, my servants, nor the men of the guard who followed me, none of us removed our clothes, each took his weapon even to the water.”

 

In the earlier chapters of Nehemiah, we saw the enemy’s anger at the re-build project. They no longer had free access to the broken city, and began a campaign of frustration and now an all-out attack to stop the work from being completed. Today we see Nehemiah’s response.

Regardless of occupation or building task, everyone became a soldier. Each person was issued a weapon, which they kept ready with one hand and worked on the wall with the other. When they were not working, they were keeping a guard for those who were on duty. They labored, slept and ate with their sword ready. Trumpeters were assigned to sound an alarm that if any one person encountered trouble, others could come to assist.

Today we are in a time not unlike the days of Nehemiah. Persecution comes from many sides and sources. Even though the attacks from the enemy have ramped up, God has not given us permission to stop our work for his Kingdom. He never said go into all the world preaching the gospel, but it’s okay to stop when you are under tribulation, or when you feel threatened.

No, in fact, Jesus said in John 16:33 (NASB) “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” 

We need to be constantly on guard for ourselves, and we need to guard the backs of brothers and sisters in Christ. God gave us each a set of spiritual armor so that we would be able to be protected while we go about the work given to us.

 

Ephesians 6:14-18

“Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,  and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints, could also be considered clothing.”

Many pieces of the spiritual armor could also be considered articles of clothing. And like Nehemiah, we should remain clothed even while we sleep. We are to remain in our armor, and carry our weapons at all times.

What can we learn from Nehemiah?

  • As our brothers and sisters in Christ go about their work, we should endeavor to be a guard for them. Have each other’s back.
  • The sword we carry is the word of God. Have it on hand at all times and be ready to wield this weapon whenever needed.
  • When we hear the alarm sounded in our community or for those in need, be prepared to run toward the battle. This can be in for form of prayer or any way God is calling you to help.
  • Never remove our armor, always be on guard.

When Nehemiah saw the threat against those who were working diligently, he came up with a strategy to keep the people safe, while still completing the task God had given them. Even though some of the things God has asked us to do may seem daunting, if we work together, and look out for each other, we can finish the tasks God’s given us.

What questions can we ask ourselves that can affect change?

  1. In what area of your life have I let my guard down? How can I be the guard for those around me? Who’s back does God want me to guard?
  2. How am I at putting on and keeping on the spiritual armor? When I sleep, do I keep my armor on?
  3. When I hear an alarm from a brother or sister, do I come running to aid in their fight?
  4. How will I use this time of quiet and isolation? Spend time in fear, or spend time preparing for spiritual battle?
  5. How well do I wield the sword of the Spirit? Do I keep it with me at all times?

Fight or Fear

By: Patty Nicholas-Boyte

 

Nehemiah 4:10-14 (NASB)

Thus in Judah it was said, “The strength of the burden bearers is failing, Yet there is much rubbish; And we ourselves are unable to rebuild the wall.” Our enemies said, “They will not know or see until we come among them, kill them and put a stop to the work.”  When the Jews who lived near them came and told us ten times, “They will come up against us from every place where you may turn,”  then I stationed men in the lowest parts of the space behind the wall, the exposed places, and I stationed the people in families with their swords, spears and bows.  When I saw their fear, I rose and spoke to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people: “Do not be afraid of them; remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your houses.”

 

Nehemiah had gotten the people of Israel to rise up and start one of the biggest building projects of that time. Each person was responsible for building a section of the broken down walls around the city, and it was working, last week we saw gaps closed and the structure was half the height.

Now, Jewish enemies who had previously been able to come and go as they wished, had their freedom restricted, and opposition began. Not idle intimidation, but a very real, very scary, menacing threat.

Rumors and murmurings began among the workers. Exhausted, they were only half finished with the job and now they had to contend with the probability that the enemy could strike from anywhere at any time. Nehemiah took the information seriously and stationed people to stand as guards.

Then, in verse 14 he spoke up and said “Do not be afraid of them: remember the Lord who is great and awesome . . .” Yes, what they were going through was fearsome, but God is greater.

The same thing is true today as we battle an unseen, yet real virus. Rumors and changing news happens so fast we can hardly keep up. There is a very real reason to be concerned for the health of our family and for ourselves, but as Nehemiah said, “do not be afraid . . .”

This passage ends with the call to fight for your brothers, sons, daughters, wives and your houses.” I believe we can use this today as a battle cry as a fight for our faith during these unprecedented times. God wants us to stand up and be bold for Him. He is using this microscopic foe to bring us to Himself. I also believe that the great commission that Jesus left us with before He ascended into Heaven, to go to all the world and make disciples is even more of a battle cry than ever before.

May we stand firm in our faith, may we fight for the faith of our families and may we make disciples wherever we go.

What can we learn from Nehemiah?

  • When there is fear from a real foe, there is often rumors and murmuring. Do our best to find the truth in the middle of everything we hear.
  • No matter how scary a situation we are in, God is bigger. Remember He is great and awesome.
  • Post guards around our situation. The guards I choose to post today are the Truth in God’s word, and wonderful accountability partners who will watch my back as I watch their back in return.
  • Remember who is fighting the fight for us. Jesus died on the cross to take away all of our guilt and shame and fights for us.

The fight was real for Nehemiah just as the battle is real today. His enemy was someone he could see, as well as something (rumors) he could not see. He had to fight each one, yet the strategy was different for each enemy.

What questions can we ask ourselves that can affect change?

  1. Even though what is happening today is as scary and as real as what Nehemiah faced, how can we look to the great and awesome God who will fight with us and for us?
  2. Am I contributing to the rumors spread across the internet by passing everything on without checking for truth?
  3. Will I spend diligent time in prayer to be an effective warrior for Christ instead of letting fear take my fighting spirit away?
  4. How will I use this time of quiet and isolation? Spend time in fear, or spend time preparing for spiritual battle?

Fill in the Gaps of our Relationships

By: Patty Nicholas-Boyte

 

Nehemiah 4:6-9 (NASB)

“So we built the wall and the whole wall was joined together to half its height, for the people had a mind to work. Now when Sanballat, Tobiah, the Arabs, the Ammonites and the Ashdodites heard that the repair of the walls of Jerusalem went on, and that the breaches began to be closed, they were very angry. All of them conspired together to come and fight against Jerusalem and to cause a disturbance in it.  But we prayed to our God, and because of them we set up a guard against them day and night.”

At first, it was more important to build the wall and close the gaps then to work on the height. With breaches closed and walls joined together, men who were used to passing through Jerusalem for nefarious purposes no longer had free access.

When I see words such as fitly joined, come together, or gaps closed, I am reminded of relationships as well as the task that needed to be completed. I believe that in the middle of the necessary safety project, God was also rebuilding His people.

The Israelites had been in exile for over seventy years, and even when they had returned to a homeland many had never even seen, they were lost. They existed in a broken down city in broken homes for several years before Nehemiah had the plan to repair the city.

The Jewish people were as scattered, gap filled and broken as the walls around their beloved Jerusalem. God’s plan, carried out by Nehemiah was to bring healing to His children at the same time as they were taking care of the safety issue. God closed the gaps in relationships as the holes in the walls came together and He re-built broken families as bricks were raised. Some of you may say there is a relationship of yours that is broken beyond repair, however, I know that if God could use the raising of the walls of Jerusalem in record time, as well as repair the spirit and relationships of His chosen people, then what you are going through is not too hard for God.

Of course, whenever we fulfill God’s plan, the enemy is angry. In verse 8 we are told how the enemies of God’s people conspired to come and fight against Jerusalem and cause a disturbance. We cannot be surprised at hardship and opposition when we are in God’s will, in fact, I believe this is one way we know we are on the right course.

In verse 9, the people prayed to God, and then they set up a guard against enemy day and night. We need to be just as vigilant. We need to stay in prayer and keep a guard over our family, and ourselves for our enemy is just as real as the flesh and blood that came against the Jewish people during Nehemiah’s time.

Ephesians 6:12 (NASB)For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

What can we learn from Nehemiah?

  • To God, broken relationships are as important as broken walls.
  • Working together, in God’s will can build bonds.
  • When we work for God, expect opposition.
  • Be on vigilant in prayer, and guard each other as you work as unto the Lord.
  • Our enemy is not necessarily flesh and blood.

In verse 9 Nehemiah said that they prayed to their God. Prayer was the first action he took when it came to taking on the enemy. He knew the first rule of spiritual warfare. Do not attempt to enter into a battle without serious prayer.

What questions can we ask ourselves that can affect change?

  1. Are there relationships in your life that need repair?
  2. Is there a relationship you feel is too broken for God to fix? Pray and watch Him work.
  3. Are you like God’s people in Nehemiah’s time, scattered and lost? Will you allow God’s plan to bring healing as He works on other issues at the same time?
  4. How can we set a guard up around each other as we battle together in prayer?

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

As you go through your week, remember that God is the God of hope and of peace. As you read His Word and cry out to Him, He will fill you with a hope and peace that is overflowing and sustaining.

Build Up – Not Tear Down

By: Patty Nicholas-Boyte

 

Nehemiah 4: 1-3 (NASB)

Now it came about that when Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall, he became furious and very angry and mocked the Jews.  He spoke in the presence of his brothers and the [b]wealthy men of Samaria and said, “What are these feeble Jews doing? Are they going to restore it for themselves? Can they offer sacrifices? Can they finish in a day? Can they revive the stones from the dusty rubble even the burned ones?”  Now Tobiah the Ammonite was near him and he said, “Even what they are building—if a fox should jump on it, he would break their stone wall down!”

At this point, Nehemiah had each person assigned and the work began on his own section of the wall. Their morale was high and they were making significant progress. However, prior to the Israelites return to Jerusalem, people from all around were able to come and go. They traveled to and through the city as they pleased. Now that the walls were being rebuilt, this had become a problem to some clear enemies of the Jewish people.

Sanballet and others began an all-out campaign to put a stop to Nehemiah’s plans. Their first attempt is a verbal assault. If this were to happen in our day, I think the term we would use for their attack could be “cyber bullying”. The passage only lists a few people who verbally abuse the Jews, and yet, for this to make it into our text today, I believe many people must have been party to the attack as we will see next week when I cover Nehemiah’s prayer in response to the situation.

Haven’t we seen many of the same instances today that are similar to Nehemiah’s time? I can think of several examples, such as, Christian bakeries, photographers, and florists under attack. Some have been forced to take legal measures to maintain their businesses.

It is true, we fight battles on many fronts today. What God has been saying to me through the book of Nehemiah, is now is the time to stand together and continue to build in the section of the wall God has given us to work on. Hold each other up, encourage your fellow builder in their work. Be an encourager today, speak words of life, build up, and do not tear down.

What can we learn from Nehemiah?

  • Nehemiah remained faithful to the task God gave him even in the midst of a trial
  • When we are doing the work God has given us to do, expect opposition
  • Do not let negative talk tear us down.

Nehemiah knew he was doing God’s work. He had the favor of the king, a free travel pass and a blank check for all the supplies he needed. He even had all of the Israelite’s on board with the project. With all that he had going right, I wonder if he even anticipated opposition.

What questions can we ask ourselves that can affect change?

  1. What opposition are you encountering that you did not expect?
  2. Is there something you know you’ve been called to do, but are now experiencing the biggest fight of your life?
  3. How can we stand together and hold each other up instead of tear down?
  4. If there is someone you’ve already been a part of tearing down, what can you do to help build that person up?

Weekly Bible Verse: Psalm 145

Our weekly Bible verse comes from Psalm 145. This is a Psalm of praise and thanksgiving to our King. As you read and meditate over this verse today, give thanks to the Lord for all that He has done.

Psalm 145 (NIV)

I will exalt you, my God the King;
    I will praise your name for ever and ever.
  Every day I will praise you
    and extol your name for ever and ever.

 Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
    his greatness no one can fathom.
 One generation commends your works to another;
    they tell of your mighty acts.
  They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
    and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
 They tell of the power of your awesome works—
    and I will proclaim your great deeds.
 They celebrate your abundant goodness
    and joyfully sing of your righteousness.

 The Lord is gracious and compassionate,
    slow to anger and rich in love.

 The Lord is good to all;
    he has compassion on all he has made.
 All your works praise you, Lord;
    your faithful people extol you.
 They tell of the glory of your kingdom
    and speak of your might,
 so that all people may know of your mighty acts
    and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
    and your dominion endures through all generations.

The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises
    and faithful in all he does.
The Lord upholds all who fall
    and lifts up all who are bowed down.
 The eyes of all look to you,
    and you give them their food at the proper time.
 You open your hand
    and satisfy the desires of every living thing.

 The Lord is righteous in all his ways
    and faithful in all he does.
 The Lord is near to all who call on him,
    to all who call on him in truth.
 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
    he hears their cry and saves them.
 The Lord watches over all who love him,
    but all the wicked he will destroy.

 My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord.
    Let every creature praise his holy name
    for ever and ever.”
