Almost everyone I’ve spoken to today mentioned that they were tired, rundown or overwhelmed. Myself included! It was even something I came across in today’s chapters.
“Then the people of Judah began to complain, ‘the workers are getting tired and there is so much rubble to be moved. We will never be able to build the wall by ourselves.” 4:10
Nehemiah brings his people’s focus back to God’s purpose. He reminds them that God will fight for them as they feel people closing in on them.
What is overwhelming you right now? Look past the logistics and remember God’s purpose for it all. Offer up your worries and anxieties to him, and ask him to make it clear what your part is. And as Bethany mentioned yesterday, good work involves other people! Ask for help. Invite others into it. Delegate, when you can. But above all else, find rest and peace in the only One who can provide it. Even when there’s not sleep, or answers, or solutions, there’s always rest available in Him.
