" If a Fox Should Jump on it, it Would Break Their Stone Wall Down!" – Part 3

This is our final account of Nehemiah’s exploits in the midst of opposition and how he overcame the discouragement of rebuilding theJerusalemruins afterJudahhad been in exile for more than 70 years inBabylon.

We are looking at Spiritual Strategies to counter the enemy’s plans:

Let’s begin by quoting again from Nehemiah 4:15-23

15 And it came to pass, when our enemies heard that the thing had been told us, that God defeated their counsel. And we returned all of us to the walls, every man to his work. 16 And it came to pass from that day forward, that half of their young men did the work, and half were ready for to fight, with spears, and shields, and bows, and coats of mail, and the rulers were behind them in all the house of Judah. 17 Of them that built on the wall and that carried burdens, and that laded: with one of his hands he did the work, and with the other he held a sword. 18 For every one of the builders was girded with a sword about his reins. And they built, and sounded with a trumpet by me. 19 And I said to the nobles, and to the magistrates, and to the rest of the common people: The work is great and wide, and we are separated on the wall one far from another: 20 In what place so ever you shall hear the sound of the trumpet, run all thither unto us: our God will fight for us. 21 And let us do the work: and let one half of us hold our spears from the rising of the morning, till the stars appear. 22 At that time also I said to the people: Let every one with his servant stay in the midst of Jerusalem, and let us take our turns in the night, and by day, to work. 23 Now I and my brethren, and my servants, and the watchmen that followed me, did not put off our clothes: only every man stripped himself when he was to be washed.

Hey,

Don’t worry about the Devil

Because the devil

And the demons

Outside You

Cannot harm You!

IT IS THE DEMONS

WITHIN YOU

THAT CAN DESTROY YOU!

 

Nehemiah realised that

As long as he and his people were

Organised and united on the inside,

The enemy on the outside

Would never penetrate

Their spiritual resilience and tenacity.

 

As long as they are on the outside

They are in the world

And defeated;

For it is written

“You have overcome them, little children.

For GREATER IS HE

WHO IS IN YOU

THAN HE WHO IS IN THE WORLD” I John 4:4

 

That is why

Through Fear

Doubt

Hate

Bitterness and

Anger

He (who is in the world) is trying to come into you

And destroy you from within;

So, resist him

And walk in LOVE,

FORGIVENESS

AND PATIENCE,

WAITING FOR THE LORD’S

VENGEANCE,REWARD, TIMING AND SEASON!

 

The truth is

We are too blessed to quit,

Too blessed to fear,

To worry

To be cursed.

 

We are just too blessed to lose

And be destroyed!

We are just too blessed

To give up and walk away

From our destiny!

 

So hold on

And refuse to give in;

Understanding that

Your confidence and courage

Shall both be highly rewarded.

 

Accept that there is need for us

To endure,

That we may inherit what was promised.

For in a little while,

HE WHO IS COMING

SHALL COME!

AND HIS RIGHTEOUS ONES

SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.

BUT IF THEY DRAW BACK,

HIS SOUL SHALL HAVE

NO PLEASURE IN THEM.

 

SO, PLEASE

PLEASE HIM

BY YOUR PERSISTENT FAITH

AND REFUSE

TO THROW AWAY

THAT CONFIDENCE! (Hebrews 10:19-39)

 

Hallelu Yah

Amen,Amen and Amen!

PEACE
