Just like a good movie or story, every plot has a good guy and a bad guy! In the story of Nehemiah, it’s pretty obvious which one he is! He’s the good guy. But there were bad guys too. They tried over and over again to distract Nehemiah, to get him to come down off the wall so the work would cease. When they tried to distract him, Nehemiah said, “I’m doing a great work and I cannot come down.” If you want to finish strong and be the good guy or girl, take your cue from Nehemiah and stay focused on what needs to be done. Ask God to help you battle through the distractions by remembering this phrase: I am doing a great work and I cannot come down.
Bottom Line: Stay focused on what needs to be done.
