Expect Opposition

Jeff takes us through Nehemiah and the Jews finishing the walls around Jerusalem. They met opposition in the form of enemies attempting to pull Nehemiah from the work (distraction), threatening to slander Nehemiah’s name to the king (dishonor), and to get him to hide from false threats (distraction). Nehemiah stayed on task using dedication, directness, and discernment. Jeff encourages us to do that same as we take a stand with God in our lives.
