Jesus paid it all. There is no more striving when we walk with Him into what He has called us to. Righteousness, peace and joy. Your past is gone, He remembers it no more. It is under the blood. "Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits" - Psalm 103:2 NASB
Rebuilding the wall around ourselves and our cities is a task not for the faint of heart. It's an incredible undertaking that requires courage and strength. It requires understanding as to the season of life we are currently in. The Sons of Issachar understood the times and the seasons. Nehamiah understood the seasons he was in and what he was called to do. Do not desire someone elses section, build your wall!
It's so simple. When we partener with His presence and seek His plans and pursposes for our lives there is righteousness, peace and joy. It's always better then we could ever imagine when we seek true riches. Seek His face, see His pen author your destiny.

We love extravagant displays of the the Fathers affection. We are passionate to see His kingdom come and will be done. Through signs that make you wonder, but also through the quiet pursuit of of Him through His word. When we water ourselves in His presence and His word, we are a tree planted by streams of living water. As we abide in Him we bear much fruit.
