Faithful and Loving Father, we come to You today to thank You for always being there for us to go to. Because Christ was the mediator between us and God, we can take our praise and concerns directly to You. When we have bad news, let us first go to You for comfort and guidance. The throne of grace is always open for us to seek Your guidance, or to praise You. In all we do, let us give glory to You. Praying in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen

DAY 33: How To Handle Bad News

Hanani, one of my brothers, came from Judah with some other men, and I questioned them about the Jewish remnant that had survived the exile, and also about Jerusalem.

They said to me, “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.”

 When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.   ~ Nehemiah 1: 2-4

Unexpected news will come. Sometimes it comes as a pleasant surprise while other times the news rocks us to the core. 

Nehemiah heard something he couldn't deal with right away. So he sat down and fell apart. He mourned the news, fasted and prayed.  But... what happened next is powerful.  He got up and went into action. 

God equipped Nehemiah to take action, but Nehemiah went to God before making a bold move.  Remember this when you are surprised by unexpected news.

Go to God, first. Get equipped with solid instruction. Then get up and go with a plan.
