“Our God, listen! We are being treated with contempt. Turn back their jeers on their own heads; give them over to be plundered in a land of exile. Don’t cover their guilt, don’t let their sin be wiped out from before you; because they have insulted the builders to their face.”
Nehemiah 3:36-37 CJB (4:4-5 NKJB)
Nothing really ever gets done when we focus on the world and its mocking towards us, but when we focus on the LORD, things get done, we succeed!
“So we kept building the wall, which was soon joined together and completed to half its height all the way around; because the people worked with a will.”
Nehemiah 3:38 CJB (4:6 NKJB)
We really need to be focusing on the LORD and seeking His will and doing it! As the world mocks us, let it drive us to go farther in the LORD!
“Serve Adonai with gladness. Enter His presence with joyful songs.”
Psalm 100:2 CJB
Today, don’t focus on the world and its trappings, but instead, focus on the LORD and His will! Instead just keep moving ahead in Jesus!
Have a blessed day!
