1 Kings 6:14 - So Solomon built the temple and finished it...

God has short term as well as long-term projects for you to undertake.  At times the short-term efforts can be easily embraced and dispatched without too much difficulty.  A frenetic burst of energy and determination, and we are finished.

But there are long-term assignments that necessitate far more determination and perseverance if we are to complete them.  Building the temple cost Solomon seven years of intense investment.  It was an assignment that required years to complete.  Yet, while it took longer to finish, it also lasted longer when it was completed.  Sometimes our most lasting contributions are those tasks that required our maximum effort.

What long-term assignment has God given you?  Have you grown weary in the task?  Have you lost your focus or passion for the work?  Have you contemplated quitting? 

Remember... it is often in the most challenging of assignments that we experience our greatest reward and satisfaction.
