Expect It

today's reading.
Nehemiah 4    Now when Sanballat heard that we were building the wall, he was angry and greatly enraged, and he jeered at the Jews...

the blog.
As we come to Nehemiah 4, good progress has been made rebuilding the wall and Sanballat and Tobiah are not at all happy about it. In fact, they are downright angry. So much so that they make plans to attack Nehemiah and all those involved in the rebuilding project.

As I read this passage, the spiritual warfare going on was so evident. It was a good reminder for me that Satan doesn't like it when we are accomplishing things for the Lord, and as we're working for Him, we should expect opposition and be prepared for it. 

What did you learn from Nehemiah (the man) about responding to, and coping with, opposition? What did he show you about being a leader in difficult circumstances? Tami W.
