He Will Lift You Up
Nehemiah 4:10 (NKJV)
Then Judah said, “The strength of the labourers is failing, and there is so much rubbish that we are not able to build the wall.”
Nehemiah is known as the great builder and rebuilder. Under his guidance, the people of Israel cleared the rubble and constructed walls non stop.
A month into their unending work, Judah told Nehemiah “The strength of the labourers is failing, and there is so much rubbish that we are not able to build the wall.” (Nehemiah 4:10 NKJV). Nehemiah was dealing with a group of discouraged builders. longing to see progress, they could only see rubbish needing to be removed.
He Will Lift You Up
Nehemiah’s remedy was to organise and encourage the Israelites. He first reminded them God was with them. Then he assigned them to work in shifts so they could rest regularly. Each family was given their own section of wall to complete. With these changes came a renewed sense of community and focus.
It’s easy to become discouraged when you are isolated and tired. Perhaps you have worked late too often, or things have happened in your family to make it impossible for you to rest. Follow Nehemiah’s example, and work with your church family to be restored and to defeat discouragement. Remember He Will Lift You Up
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
