A Thought for Today


"For they all made us afraid, saying, Their hands shall be weakened from
the work, that it be not done. Now therefore, O God, strengthen my
hands." Nehemiah 6:9


Fear makes us weak.

Faith in God makes us strong.  


Nehemiah's job was to rebuild the city of Jerusalem.  Satan sent his people to delay, to mock, to frighten and to entrap Nehemiah and his workers.

However, Nehemiah refused to stop, or even slow down, to listen to the enemies of God.  They completed the work, despite the interference of Sanballat, Tobiah and Geshem.

Our enemy does not want us to be successful in the work of the Lord.  He wants to frustrate us and to make us afraid, so that we will not be able to do the task with which the Lord has entrusted us.

Do not be afraid of the cynics, the critics or the prophets of doom.

If God called you, He will equip you.


"So the wall was finished…

And  it came to pass, that when all our enemies heard thereof, and all
the heathen that were about us saw these things, they were much cast
down in their own eyes: for they perceived that this work was wrought of
our God." Nehemiah 6:15-16


God's work will be completed; and the world will recognize that it was His power that accomplished the task.



Fear makes us weak.

Faith in God makes us strong.
