...when Sanballat heard that we built the wall, he was wroth, and took great indignation, and mocked the Jews. -Nehemiah 4:1
Do you often feel opposed and ridiculed? Nehemiah did as he built the walls, but he had a mind to work for God, no matter how many hindrances came his way. He did not answer these proud and haughty scorners that tried to destroy the work but continually looked to God even though they did much to disgrace him.
It's still that way today in the church world as God's people try to do His will for they are a despised people. Discouragement will come and all Christian workers can expect opposition from the world and discouragement from the Church. The enemies reproaches should drive us to prayer, and to keep on working for the Lord until He comes for us. Watchfulness and prayer will always bring the victory, so rest assured that God hears and sees it all and victory can be ours, just as it was for Nehemiah when he built the walls.
