He Must Increase - Day 145

Nehemiah was the man! I was reading this morning how the enemies of God's people were trying to call a meeting with him. The meeting was really an ambush, a ruse, to get him away from his work and harm him. They were threatening to tell the king he was a rebel leader, they were hiring false prophets to tell lies. They tried everything they could to sideline him from what God had called him to do. And what was Nehemiah's response to all their efforts? He ignored them. Wouldn't meet with them. Wouldn't stop doing what God had called him to. Wouldn't be frightened by false prophets. He blew them off...and posted guards on around the city. When the enemy tries to dissuade you from doing what God has called you to...what do you do? Love to hear your comments:
