I was encouraged through something my brother in law, Jay said to me today. Before you can complete the Mission you must assess the damage. Nehemiah did just that before the rebuilding ever started and he continued to encourage the discouraged that the job would be completed. Let us do the same and continue to trust God for the works we are called to accomplish in Christ Jesus.
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
Nehemiah 4:20-23 NKJV
“Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us.” So we labored in the work, and half of the men held the spears from daybreak until the stars appeared. At the same time I also said to the people, “Let each man and his servant stay at night in Jerusalem, that they may be our guard by night and a working party by day.” So neither I, my brethren, my servants, nor the men of the guard who followed me took off our clothes, except that everyone took them off for washing.”
