A man named Nehemiah experienced those very things, too. Yet, in spite of all the opposition, he chose to keep building anyway. I love when the Holy Spirit makes the truths of the Old Testament come alive, don’t you? That is why I’ve created this teaching series on walking in your calling.
Walking in the calling God has given us is not always unicorns and cupcakes, right? Most of the time, our calling requires sacrifice and tenacity, a determination not to give up! This determination holds on to God’s promises in the midst of ridicule, fear and discouragement.
After devouring this OT book, I am more determined than ever to pursue the call God has placed on my life—to encourage, equip and empower the body of Christ to live in the fullness of who it was created to be.
This series of teachings on Nehemiah is for you if God has inspired you to:
- Be the best mom you can be.
- Start a ministry.
- Write a book.
- Build a business.
- Pursue overseas missionary work.
- Launch a speaking career.
- Or do anything that requires leaving the pull of status quo in your life!
In this study, you will learn what to do when God places a burden on your heart for something. You will uncover some of the enemy’s tactics to derail your destiny and how to stand firm against him. You will also learn how to have success in spite of anything and everything the enemy throws your way.
Nehemiah’s story so beautifully parallels our lives as believers walking out our own callings in the particular work God has given us to do. In researching and studying for this series, I found the book Nehemiah is most often used for lessons on leadership. Satan will always try and derail your destiny.

Nehemiah’s story is riveting! And so is yours!
