Nehemiah 4:6 So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work.
Israel had gone into captivity and the walls and gates of Jerusalem were in a very bad shape. When Nehemiah learned of this he received permission from the King to go and rebuild the walls.
Whenever we have a strong burden to do the work of God He will supply us with the materials and all the resources that we need to get the job done. Where we fail most of the time is when we don't have that last ingredient. "for the people had a mind to work."
Many projects never get done because we don't have a mind to work. Many resources are wasted because we don't have a mind to work.
Can you imagine what a great revival we could have in America if God's people would humble themselves and ask God to give them a mind to work.
Lord, give us a mind to work in Sunday School. Give us a mind to work on new projects to improve our church. Give us a mind to work in our communities to witness and share the message of Christ.
