An indignant Moabite mocked the Jews, saying: will they offer sacrifices and complete it in a day? Will they revive the stones out of the heaps of rubbish, stones that have been burned in the fire? It's a picture of demonic spirits arrayed against us, arrayed against God's purpose & plan, scorning & belittling you, saying: is it possible for God to raise up people whose lives have been burnt? Stones are a picture of people. Once a stone was burnt and crumbled, it was easy to pull it out of position. When we walk through a difficult season in our life, it's what the Bible calls a trial by fire. What is at stake is your destiny, and what's being tested is the quality of your faith. There is no believer in Christ who's not called to restore burnt stones. True religion is to visit the widows and the orphans in their affliction, to visit the burnt stones and comfort them. When Nehemiah saw the broken lives, it was in his heart not to judge or condemn, but to be part of the solution.
