There is a notion amongst us that if God wants something done He will do it all for us. Imagine if these people just left all the building or all the protection to God and sat by to watch. The argument could be made that if these people really believed that God wanted this done that it would be against their belief in God's providence to take up arms to protect themselves or to slow the work down by working one handed or to try to build this back up themselves. God often puts us right in the middle of a project, has us do the work, has us face the fears and desperate odds, and by our faithful hands and hearts leads us to His accomplishment.
