Nehemiah 12:43 (Pt. 4)

After the wall of Jerusalem was rebuilt in 52 days, “And they offered great sacrifices that day and rejoiced, for God had made them rejoice with great joy; the women and children also rejoiced. And the joy of Jerusalem was heard far away.”

There are two groups of people singled out in this wonderful praise-verse.  Women and children.  Yes, in the midst of God’s record of this fantastic day of rejoicing at the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem, God takes time to mention women – and children.  Amazing.  This praise service with choirs and instrumentalists walking the new wall is a really big deal.  Obviously, these two people-groups are extremely important to our God.  How extremely important. 

God, help us to keep this in mind as we labor for women and children – and their loved ones.  You single them out as rejoicing for you.  We single them out for ministry and for prayer.  Thank you for letting us know how you view their importance in this one great verse.
