During the 12-week Eating as an Act of Worship Health and Fitness Course, we study the Book of Nehemiah. In Nehemiah 4:6, the Jewish remnant were about to experience a miracle from God because "the people had a mind to work." What was the miracle? In just 52 DAYS, the Jews miraculously rebuilt the wall around the City of Jerusalem, which had been completely destroyed by the Babylonians (Nehemiah 6:15)! Although there was opposition from their enemies, the Jewish remnant diligently worked to obey God's command to rebuild. They kept their focus even though they had to work with one hand while holding a weapon to fend off attacks with the other.
In Ephesians 6, God commands us to daily put on the whole armor of God so that we, too, can stand strong against the evil that comes against us as we labor for Him. This includes your labor to rebuild and repair the damage you've done to the temple of the Holy Spirit, which is your body. God expects you to have a mind to work and be dressed for warfare with the opposition that's coming. He DOES NOT give you permission to quit under any circumstances. On the contrary, His unwavering command to you is this: "Go up into the mountains and bring down timber. Build my house (the temple of the Holy Spirit) so that I might take pleasure in it and be honored!" Haggai 1:8
