Nehemiah 9:7-30

(Read 7-15 for context)

Worship God for His Goodness

INTRODUCTION:  Last week in the first six verses of this chapter we saw the Israelites who were returned from captivity worshipping God for His greatness.  As this prayer to God continues here we see them worshiping God for His goodness.  There are five areas in which God is good that you should look at as you prepare to worship God in your life.  Remember, worship is not only about what you do at church but what you do in private and in public out in the world.  These good things that God does for you should be at the center of your worship.

  1. HE CHOOSES YOU TO SERVE HIM (V. 7)
  2. HE KEEPS HIS PROMISE TO DELIVER YOU (VS. 8-19)
  3. HE LEADS YOU (VS. 19-20)
  4. HE PROVIDES FOR YOU (20-25)
  5. HE CHASTISES YOU (VS. 26-30)

CONCLUSION:  God is so good to you and I!  He chooses you to serve Him.  He is keeping His promise to deliver you.  He leads you every day of your life, if you will follow.  He provides for your needs.  And yes, He chastises you to bring you back into the way that is best for you.  Worship God for His goodness!
