So we rebuilt the wall till all of it reached half its height, for the people worked with all their heart. – Nehemiah 4:6
Nehemiah was the man who stood against all the opposition and rebuilt the wall in Jerusalem. People had all the reasons to be afraid and stop work. Their situation was hopeless, yet they all geared up to work towards the rebuilding of the wall.
But we prayed to our God and posted a guard day and night to meet this threat.- 9
When we face opposition or trouble of any kind, we need to take some action and not remain passive.
“Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.” – 14
God is always by our side. We just have to pray and seek His strength and wisdom.
So we continued the work with half the men holding spears, from the first light of dawn till the stars came out. – 21
The Jews continued to work despite the strong opposition from the enemies, because they knew God would fight for them.
