Numbers 22:1-38; Proverbs 19:1-29; James 3:1-4:12
Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me…But when Sanballat the Horonite…heard it, they laughed us to scorn, and despised us, and said, What is this thing that ye do? Nehemiah 2:18-19
Nehemiah dreamed of a day when Jerusalem would once again be restored to its former glory. As he made plans to do the work that God had placed in his heart, he was ridiculed and laughed at. Child of God, if God has placed in your heart a vision, don’t be discouraged if some ridicule and laugh at your exercise. Don’t let small minds convince you that your dreams are too big! The God that guided Nehemiah will guide you too. —Sid Halsband
Happy they who trust in Jesus!
Sweet their portion is, and sure;
When the foe on others seizes,
He will keep His own secure. —T. Kelly
