iLEAD - A Study in Nehemiah - Handling Opposition

iLEAD - A Study in Nehemiah - Handling Opposition

Passage: Nehemiah 4

Speaker: Pastor Stephen Palm

Series: iLEAD - A Study in Nehemiah

In Nehemiah 4 we see that Nehemiah faces sharp opposition, first in the form of mockery and then in the form of threats. Yet, he refuses to be distracted. He adapts in order to safeguard the workers and prays for God's protection of the workers and God's judgment of his opponents. Nehemiah teaches us the important interplay between hard prayers and courageous work. We also see the danger of a midpoint in any grand adventure and the need to seek God's help in not getting discouraged.
