“Then as I looked over the situation, I called together the nobles and the rest of the people and said to them, “Don’t be afraid of the enemy! Remember the Lord, who is great and glorious, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes!”
Nehemiah 4:14 NLT
Accomplishing any large task can be tiring. There are always pressures that can bring on discouragement. The task seems impossible, it can never be finished, or too many factors are working against you. Folks, the only cure for fatigue and discouragement is focusing on God’s purposes. Nehemiah reminded the workers of their calling, their goal, and God’s protection. If you are overwhelmed by an task, tired, or discouraged, remember God’s purpose for your life and his special purpose for the project. Always remember this….God is able to do wonders even in discouraging situations.
