Welcome to my Blog!!!
The word man means a person especially male of strength, integrity and honour. When we talk of men raised to build, we mean that building work is not for every man, not every man is gifted to build. Several men were called or raised for several purposes at a given time and each of them, having known their calling worked towards achieving them.
For instance, Moses was raised to be a deliverer. The primary assignment of Moses was to deliver and save the children of Isreal from the hands of Pharaoh. David was called to defeat Goliath. Abraham was called to be the father of many nations. John was called to be the forerunner of Christ whereas Nehemiah was called to build the broken walls of Jerusalem.
Our calling depends on our talents, capability and gifts. So, find what your calling is and stay focused. Do not want it be everywhere and do not want to do everything. Stay on your course because that's how to find success.
Nehemiah despite the challenges and distractions that came his way, he didn't let that deter him rather he kept pressing on and staying on his course. Eventually, he completed his work.
Now it came to pass when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and Geshem the Arabian, and the rest of our enemies, heard that I had builded the wall, and that there was no breach left therein; (though at that time I had not set up the doors upon the gates;) - Nehemiah 6:1
What is that thing God has called you to build and put together?
Are you building it?
Did you leave it halfway?
Were you discouraged and distracted by what people said?
Be like Nehemiah, he had a vision, he was disciplined, he was focused and determined. This is what enabled him to build successful. No matter what people say, you have to pay deaf ears. Even when you are not getting all the help and support you need, make God your greatest support and God.
The time to build is now because God has given you all you need to build yourself, family and every other thing. Ensure that you live out a full proof of your ministry and calling.
God bless you.
