PostSubject: Confronted By Opposition   Sat May 28, 2016 2:29 pm

But it so happened, when Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall, that he was furious and very indignant, and mocked the Jews. And he spoke before his brethren and the army of Samaria, and said, “What are these feeble Jews doing? Will they fortify themselves? Will they offer sacrifices? Will they complete it in a day? Will they revive the stones from the heaps of rubbish—stones that are burned?” Now Tobiah the Ammonite was beside him, and he said, “Whatever they build, if even a fox goes up on it, he will break down their stone wall.” Hear, O our God, for we are despised; turn their reproach on their own heads, and give them as plunder to a land of captivity! Do not cover their iniquity, and do not let their sin be blotted out from before You; for they have provoked You to anger before the builders. So we built the wall, and the entire wall was joined together up to half its height, for the people had a mind to work. Nehemiah 4:1-6

For Nehemiah and the Israelites, confrontation came while working to rebuild Jerusalem’s wall. The enemy prepared to attack, hoping to create delay and despair. Yet, when God enlists people to work for Him, He accomplishes the task and equips His workers to complete the job despite opposition. Opposition—no matter what form it takes—is never much fun. Jesus reminds us, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

In Nehemiah 4:9 we see two things that affirm God’s direction in such times: ...we made our prayer to our God, and because of them we set a watch against them day and night. Christian missionary, author and speaker, Elizabeth Elliot said "that in times of trouble we ought to trust Jesus and do the next thing.”

Paul, writing to Timothy, said, But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. 2 Timothy 4:5. With and through Christ we should be moved to action. If we are not, we really should take "an inventory" of our faith in Him. When your walk of faith has at it's foundation; godly principles, you never need to fear opposition.

Insight: At the time of the rebuilding of Jerusalem's walls, Nehemiah was God’s "man of the hour," but Jesus Christ is our Savior for life!

Reader's Prayer: Dear God, As a true follower of Your Son, Jesus Christ, help me to realize I am never alone. When I face opposition and am in Your will, help me to realize I need not ever fear. In Jesus' Name, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
