"And (Sanballat) spoke before his brethren and the army of Samaria, and said, 'What do these feeble Jews? Will the fortify themselves? Will they sacrifice? Will they make an end in a day? Will they revive the stones out of the heaps of the rubbish whey are burned?'" (Neh. 4:2)

The five questions Sanballat asked reflect five important principles for accomplishing any task.

"So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof; for the people had a mind to work" (Neh. 4:6).

The Jews accomplished the impossible, and they did it in 52 days. Can we expect less from God today? Let us have a 'mind to work' and be about the tasks God has set before this church.
