So I’m editing Chapter 2 of Baqash. Seems like this is a monumental task. I’m enjoying it. But I wonder, “Abba, will this book help anyone? Is it worth the time?” Certainly there is pressure from “princes and principalities” urging on the doubt and fear. Thankfully it was on my heart to re-read Nehemiah this week.
Read Nehemiah 6:1-14
Mehetable was sent to put fear into Nehemiah’s heart to get him to quit rebuilding Jerusalem, God’s city.
“13 He had been hired to intimidate me so that I would commit a sin by doing this, and then they would give me a bad name to discredit me.”
Here’s my thought. God put it on Nehemiah’s heart to rebuild Jerusalem. It’d be a sin to stop. God has put it on my heart to write a book for him. Would it be a sin to stop?
I think yes. So I will continue on and trust God to put the right words on my heart.
