Nehemiah 6:3 So I sent messengers to them, saying, “I am doing a great work and cannot come down. Why should the work stop while I leave to come down to meet with you?”
God has given me a vision, plan and purpose. He has asked me to do a job for him and I know deep in my spirit what it is.
Since I was a little girl I knew what I was called to do.
I was called to worship Jesus and bring others into His presence.
That call has never left me.
Over the years, I have allowed people and circumstances to intimidate me and steal my joy and delight in doing what I’m called to do.
I have continually run away from my calling, just like Jonah.
I’ve allowed the enemy to rob me and consume me with fear. I’ve been in the belly of my own whale for far too long but this time I’m on my way to Nineveh.
Nehemiah 6:9 For they all wanted to frighten us, thinking, “They will become discouraged with the work and it will not be done.” But now, O God, strengthen my hands.
I have allowed the spirit of intimidation and fear to engulf and overtake me, to the point where I have then become immobile through utter discouragement.
Therefore, it is so important that I do not go down. I must stay seated in high places, confident in what God has called me to do. God will strengthen me as I fully rely on Him.
Nehemiah 2:5 I said to the king, “If it pleases the king, and if your servant has found favor in your presence, I ask that you send me to Judah, to the city of my fathers’ tombs, so that I may rebuild it.”
I am a builder for the kingdom of God, on this earth.
He has asked me to be a part of His building network to restore what has been destroyed by the enemy.
God has given me the mandate to lead people into the presence of God where chains are broken, lives are restored and hearts are set free.
I am doing a good work and I cannot come down.
