The Lord's Good Hand is Merciful

December 4, 2022 Preacher: Jeff Fisher

Passage: Nehemiah 2:1–10

Click here for the sermon discussion questions or see them listed below. We highly encourage you to listen, think, and talk about the sermon. These are questions you can reflect on by yourself, with your family, or with your small group. 

Discussion Questions

  1. What should we remember about God’s character to help us wait patiently as we pray?  Another way to view this same question, what do we forget about God’s character when we grow impatient in our prayers?
  2. Artexerxes was a ruthless murderous king.  Why do you think Nehemiah would risk his life to make such bold requests?  Would you be willing to do the same?  Why or why not?
  3. How do you see God’s merciful hand at work throughout this passage?
  4. What lessons can we learn from Sanballat and Tobiah’s opposition to Nehemiah’s work?
