HANDLING SANBALLAT- CONTINUE WORKING-1
Nehemiah 4:6 “So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work”
I just love Nehemiah! Despite all the noise, plots, schemes, discouragement, incitement and attacks of Sanballat, Nehemiah and his men continued working!
Friend, the plan of the enemy is for you to quit, get depressed and wallow in self-pity but you must not, that is too much power to give the enemy.
The question is this: why should you stop because of the ranting of your enemies? Their happiness and fulfillment will come when you quit your assignment, why should you give them that pleasure?
Nehemiah understood this principle and he kept keeping on in spite of the enemies. You must never quit or give up just because your enemies are making noise. Every one of us have one thousand and one reasons why we should quit, and those reasons may even seem cogent but they are all part of the grand scheme of the enemy to halt our purpose.
Yesterday, I checked the website posts of “LIFT” on liftmotivational.com and discovered that this episode you’re reading is actually episode two thousand one hundred and forty two (2,142)! How did we get here?
By simply taking it day by day, lines upon lines and precepts upon precepts. Have there been discouragements? Yes, quite a lot but we kept writing day by day. Did the enemy tempt us to stop? Many times but here we are going strong and not looking back.
Matthew 13:3 “And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying Behold a sower went forth to sow”
Matthew 13:4 “And when he sowed some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up”
Matthew 13:5 “Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up because they had no deepness of earth:”
Matthew 13:6 “And when the sun was up they were scorched and because they had no root, they withered away”
Matthew 13:7 “And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up and choked them:”
