"Remember Tobiah and Sanballat, O my God, because of what they have done; remember also the prophetess Noadiah and the rest of the prophets who have been trying to intimidate me." (Nehemiah 6:14)
The most extreme opposition and discouragement
does not come until the light at the end of the tunnel has come into our
vision. When deceit and distraction failed to hinder the work of
Nehemiah, condemnation and threats
followed. The enemy of God’s purpose uses no new tricks today as he, the
father of all lies, seeks to abort the gifts and tasks our Lord and
Savior has given us. Note that the lying workers of iniquity against
Nehemiah were quite comfortable in the religious places, even taking
unto themselves titles of prophetess and prophet. Yes. Remember this.
Discern the work of God.
“For whatsoever things were written
aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and
comfort of the scriptures might have hope.” (Romans 15:4)
