Trusting God with whatever you’re sad or anxious about, and then trusting Him in the work is done. Now, the actual tough part begins: where to start? It can be a challenge, as Nehemiah knew of his abandoned country. Yet, he faced it as he knew he had to. God was with him and, so, the work began.
1. You’ve planned and trusted, but are you ready to actually begin the tasks that God has for you?
2. Do you pray for God to give you strength to begin those tasks and purposes?
Challenge: The hardest part of all: actually beginning whatever it is God wishes you to do. Yet, you know you must. Remember that He is with you in the actual doing, just as He was with you in overcoming your fears and anxieties, and even in the planning, to where you are now. Like Nehemiah, trust in God to help you complete a good work that the Lord has given you. He will not fail or abandon you, and it’s the best work you will be doing, period. Amen.
