Lately, I’ve been hearing the high-achieving Christian women I serve (and others) talk about extreme exhaustion and the perceived need to be “constantly on” in their businesses. I believe it’s a multi-layered issue that can start to be addressed by understanding how God made us to work and the value of consistency over constantly.
Let’s be honest, the world is LOUD in telling us how we have to be constantly available, constantly online, constantly sharing our message. But it’s really CONSISTENCY that makes all the difference!
So where in the Bible do you turn in your exhaustion for an example of consistency?
Nehemiah is a case study for us. He had no idea that God would redeem his consistency as cupbearer to lead the people to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem, but he knew God put a desire in his heart and positioned him in the role for some reason (there’s that GPS again). Nehemiah built the King’s trust. And, by the time he asked permission to leave and rebuild the wall, the king not only allowed it, he provided materials and influenced leaders of the kingdoms en route to provide safe passage.
Nehemiah was consistent in his mundane (and life-risking) daily action. He sought God’s direction at every turn during the process. He was consistent as foreman of the work. The result: the wall was rebuilt in just 52 days.
