Remember the Lord

One of Satan's favorite tools is discouragement. If the enemy can deprive you of courage or hope, you're more likely to quit God's work.
Nehemiah understood how to stand against Satan's deception. His enemies tried ridicule, threats, and fear to stop his work on Jerusalem's wall. Their attempt to rob him, and his people, of courage and hope was relentless, but Nehemiah had the right response in Nehemiah 4:14.
He shared with the people, "Don't be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes."
If someone's trying to rob you of your courage or hope at work, remember the Lord. He is great and awesome, even in the midst of your battlefield.
