Rebuilding with Nehemiah, Chapter 6, Day 3


Text: 4 Four times they sent me the same message, and each time I gave them the same answer. (Nehemiah 6:4, NIV)

Teach: Nehemiah learned the lesson of staying power. His consistent response to the invitation of Sandballat is a clear example for us: if the offer is wrong once, it will always be wrong, whether the enemy comes once, four times or a dozen.

Take: The enemy is prowling, seeking those whom he can devour. Jesus understood the relentless nature of Satan’s attacks and told his disciples to ask, seek, and knock, not one time but over and over. Paul likened the believer’s faith journey to a long race, one that we were to finish faithfully.

Task: Has the enemy been trying to wear down your resolve? Reaffirm your commitment. Remind him that his ploys will not bring you down. No matter how appealing his lies may be, claim the power of God, in the name of Jesus, and stand strong on the wall so you can finish your task.
