Determined Workers

Hebrews 13:21

Nehemiah 4:1-6

God’s people were determined to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Their desire to see the wall rebuilt was great…a burden that had been given by The Lord.

It was a good thing that The Lord was leading them. That they were fixed on seeing His will accomplished. That getting the wall rebuilt was their entire focus.

Because they had scoffers. People ridiculed them for what they were doing. God’s people became a laughingstock for neighboring countries.

But they worked through the harsh words because they knew that their actions served a purpose: to glorify God.

As we work for The Lord we may face opposition. We might meet others that are determined to see us fail. But remember that The Lord has put the fire in you to see His will accomplished. Keep working to glorify God in all that you do.

Persistent Prayer

James 5:16

Genesis 32:24-30

Do you have a passionate prayer life?

Are you really concerned with the results of your prayers?

Jacob wrestled all night long with an angel to see his prayers answered. Giving up wasn’t an option…even when he suffered a physical setback.

Jacob’s persistence won him favor with God and man.

God knows if our prayers are scripted, recited, and lacking emotion. He also knows when they are speaking straight from the depths of our heart, and the intensity in which they are offered.

Create a prayer life that yields results.
