No matter what the need is and how much it is needed, there will always be those who oppose what you are doing. We will always face someone or something that will make the task much harder. So, don’t be surprised when it happens. Nehemiah and those with him were willing to do whatever it took to stay focused and committed to the vision God had given to them. Notice, they prayed and trusted God, but they also prepared to protect what they were doing. Both are needed as we engage in the change required in our lives, families, and communities. We must prepare for the opposition that will come from others, from circumstances, and from the enemy who wants to destroy the work of God.
