Nehemiah 4:6

by Rev Joel Yong

Nehemiah 4 begins with the likes of Sanballat and Tobiah, who were enemies of the Jews, cursing them and predicting that their efforts would come to naught.

The people paid no attention to these things, instead Nehemiah 4:6 records: “So we built the wall, and the entire wall was joined together up to half its height, for the people had a mind to work.”  They were focused on what they needed to do, and did not waste their time thinking about the negative words, and discouragement that came from their enemies. Set your eyes on God, nothing else, as you seek to follow Him with all your heart.
