“Our God will fight for us,” was Nehemiah’s conviction amidst attacks from the enemies. And this same belief is what will keep God’s people in times of trouble.
The more God’s people put effort into doing God’s will, the more the enemy doubles his efforts to frustrate their work. Satan does not attack those who do nothing that disturbs the kingdom…
There is power in mobilizing others to join us in carrying out God’s will. Nehemiah mobilized others to help him carry out God’s vision.
