Nehemiah 6:3 And I sent messengers unto them, saying, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you?
The Devil will seek out ways to get us off track and not doing the work that God sent us to do. Nehemiah would not be distracted. He saw the greatness of the work that he was doing.
He knew that to meet with his enemies would only cause the work to stop momentarily. Nehemiah decided to stay the course and continue with the work.
There will be arguments and attacks in your ministry. There will be the desire to step out of the ministry and to enter into a fight. That is never God’s will or way of working.
We must know what our ministry is and be busy about it. We need to focus, train our minds and hearts to stay in the middle of what we are called to do. Don’t let petty disagreements stop you from doing what God has called you to do!
