This morning as I was in prayer and meditation, I heard a word through a snippet of a verse that I had not read in a while. The verse was Nehemiah 4:6 relative to having a mind to work.
“So built we the wall, and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work.” Nehemiah 4:6 KJV
God was simply instructing me on how to pray regarding all of the ministry assignments that I have pending. I began to pray for a mind to complete what needed to be completed and that it would be done for His glory. I also asked that He would light a fire in my spirit so that I have the enthusiasm for the work.
What are you attempting to accomplish during the summer months? Is it a book, a home project, a task at work, something for your business, etc.? Regardless of what God has placed on your to-do list, you need the same spirit of enthusiasm that the Jews had when they finally completed the wall. They completed the work despite opposition. I believe we can do the same but we’ve got to have a mind to work. A mind to work is an enthusiastic mind that prioritizes God’s glory and purposes.
I’m praying for you. I pray that you complete all your assignments this summer with an enthusiastic mindset. I pray that if the fire has gone out, that God will light your fire and passion once again.
Blessings and Love,
