“So we built the wall” (Nehemiah 4:6a).
Surrounded by enemies and opposition, Nehemiah and his band of workers continued the construction on the walls of Jerusalem. At times it seemed completely unlikely that they could complete the job. The dangers were great. The work was demanding. The enemy was strong. They finished the wall because the “people had a mind to work” (Nehemiah 4:6b).
For today: Do you need to ask the Lord to give you persistence to keep serving Him? Ask the Lord to give you a mind to work!
