Daily Bible Blessing-73

 When Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall, he became angry and was greatly incensed. He ridiculed the Jews, (Nehemiah 4:1)


Sanballat, by any other name, is a hindrance from God's work taking root and progressing, but he can be overcome by prayer and by trusting in God's faithfulness. 
Nehemiah set out to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem with a few faithful fellow Israelites, but found opposition all along. Yet he was able to complete the task in 52 days.
Sanballat ridiculed Nehemiah and his work saying, "...."What are those feeble Jews doing? Will they restore their wall? Will they offer sacrifices? Will they finish in a day? Can they bring the stones back to life from those heaps of rubble - burned as they are?" (Nehemiah 4:2)
Tobiah the Ammonite, who was at his side, said, "What they are building - if even a fox climbed up on it, he would break down their wall of stones!" (Nehemiah 4:3)
Nehemiah did not stop because of the taunts. He prayed continually to the Lord and the people worked with all their heart.
If we stop the work that we are doing for the Lord, just because others taunt us, we become failures and that is not what God wants us to be. He expects us to be "overcomers" and he is there to fight our battles against the enemy. Nehemiah's work is a good example for us. We can overcome opposition to the work that we are doing for the Lord by prayer and determination. God will surely help us to complete the task that he has assigned us if we pray continually and trust in his strength. Praise God.
