Nehemiah reminded the Israelites, as they were rebuilding Jerusalem's walls, to 'Remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and fight...' (Neh 4;14). We have to do just the same when we face discouragement, disappointment and despair. For the Lord is always there and we need to bring Him into our thinking. He said, "I will never leave you", and He won't and doesn't. The Israelite's task looked overwhelming, and the neighbours were slandering and undermining them, so they could have given in to discouragement. However, God gave Nehemiah a plan, resources and resolve. The Isreaelites worked hard and they worked together, but still they couldn't have done it without the Lord's favour. How often are we about to give up when we suddenly remember, 'The Lord’!? To overcome our battles, we must take our minds off our circumstances and focus them on the Lord. We must remember God’s faithfulness to us in the past, His goodness to us in the present and recall the knowledge that we can depend on His power for the future. Let's not surrender to disappointment and despair. These are incredibly effective weapons in Satan’s armoury designed to stop us from moving forward and succeeding. Instead, let's resist the devil (James 4:7) and ‘remember’ and focus on the Lord who is great and awesome! He's the creator of the universe, and my problems and yours are no problem for Him. Let’s raise a cheer, raise a battle cry, declare His praises and fight with Him in the heavenly realms!
