In Case You Have An Important Meeting Today

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Nehemiah 1:11b

Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.


The servant of the Lord who was making this request was Nehemiah. He was King Artaxerxes’ cupbearer and he had a need to lead a group of Jewish people, who were exiled in Babylon, back to Jerusalem to rebuild the wall. He was preparing to ask Artaxerxes for permission that day, but first stopped and asked the Lord to give him success and favor with the man he would speak to.


“In Case You Have An Important Meeting Today,” why not first do what Nehemiah did. In preparation for his meeting with the king, he first had a meeting with HIS KING. He asked the Lord for success and favor before he talked to the king. Any important meeting with earthlings needs to be prefaced with a prayer meeting with OUR KING. Never mistake emphasizing the temporal over the eternal. When you talk to Jesus FIRST … The WALL will get built before you know it.


Dear Jesus,

Before any of my important meetings today, I need Your favor to grant me the success I need. Amen
