Dawn, noon & moon

Nehemiah 4:21”…So we carried on the work with half of them holding spears from dawn until the stars appeared.”



This message on ‘hard work, sacrifice and suffering’ may be hackneyed for this smartphone-era of pomp and opulence Christian ministry, nevertheless, hear me today. Builders cannot take rest, there would come a time when they have to work from dawn, through noon and to the time the moon appears, therefore I titled the message ‘dawn, noon and moon.’  Nehemiah was building the walls of Jerusalem in the midst of severe opposition, threats, intimidations, pressure and bullying, hence they could not afford to relax or give gaps in their work.  Nehemiah recruited people to be with him day and night!


Besides our elaborate planning, programs, and plethora of other work we do regarding Kingdom work, most important is PRAYER. Day and night!
My dear friends, are we also not living in an environment much the same as we see above, facing threats from many quarters as we build our ministry, build our home, children, build our career, build a church….whatever?  There are seasons that we have to go the extra mile and work for God, we may have to stay away from family and friends for a while that doesn’t mean neglect or ignore the family but the situation necessitates that our presence is needed at the work-spot. 

This is quite sensitive because I don’t mean here that you got to neglect family and personal life for the sake of Kingdom work, but there are seasons in ministry that demands more of your time, therefore, we go to sensibly handle such periods without endangering your family.  When you invest MUCH prayer as you work then God would take care of everything, the disaster happens when you neglect prayer and reading the Word during busy period in ministry.  Anybody listening? Did you get me?
