So the wall was completed
on the twenty-fifth of Elul, in fifty-two days.
When all our enemies heard about this,
all the surrounding nations were afraid,
and lost their confidence,
because they realized that this work had been done
with the help of our God.
Remember Acts 5:38-39?
If their purpose or activity is of human origin it will fail.
But if it is from God you will not be able to stop these men…
We firmly believe that our REACHING BEYOND project is from God! We believe that, just like Nehemiah and the people of Jerusalem, “this work will be done with the help of our God.” It will take time. It will take sacrifice. There will be setbacks. We could get discouraged. But if we don’t grow weary of doing good, then in due time we will reap, if we don’t lose heart!
And, in due time God will bring people to himself and glory to himself through this project!
What are you giving your time and energy to these days? Providing for your family? Seeking an education? Serving as a volunteer somewhere?
Whatever it is, ask God to confirm in your heart that what you are doing is from him and not just from your own desires. If it is of him, what you are doing will be done with the help of your God, and others will recognize that and give glory to him!
Pray that people in Parker and the surrounding communities see this project we are doing, and when it is accomplished, pray that they see it was done with the help of our God! If they do see this, God will be glorified, and more will come to know him!
