Nehemiah 9:20-21 NKJV

You also gave Your good Spirit to instruct them, and did not withhold Your manna from their mouth, and gave them water for their thirst.

The restoration of the wall of Jerusalem was completed under the leadership of Nehemiah. In addition to this great project being completed, there was a spiritual revival among God’s people. Please note that as the Israelites were praising God at a large gathering, rehearsing the goodness of God toward them, someone mentioned that God gave His good Spirit to instruct them. It may seem simple, but this is a powerful statement. If we believe the Spirit God gave to instruct us is good, then why would we hesitate to be obedient? The next time the Holy Spirit directs us through the Word or in our spirits, let us remember He is a good Spirit and be quick to obey. He is looking out for our good and the good of those He sends us to bless.
