TO MY PASTOR FRIENDS:
There will be times when you will distracted.
There will be times when the work you have been called to do will be sidetracked.
There will be times when, under stress from various places, you will want to quit.
There will be times when those who are opposed to you will desire to create busy work for you.
Look at Nehemiah and how he responded to such. . .
And I sent messengers to them, saying, “I am doing a great work and I cannot come down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and come down to you?” Nehemiah 6:3 (ESV)
Stay the course.
There will always be a Sanballat and Tobiah. They may even be members of your church.
Just remember - "The wall cannot be completed if you keep coming down."
