They Don’t Get a Vote.
Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: Nehemiah 2:20 KJV
QUESTION: How are you going to win? With all the odds against you and limited resources with you, how do you expect to reach your goals, fulfill your purpose and live out the good life?
ANSWER: The God of Heaven, He will prosper you.
That was Nehemiah’s answer when his detractors challenged him. Nehemiah was convinced that God was with him and would cause him to succeed. It was with that confidence that he told his enemies to “back off!” He reminded them that they have no portion, no right or memorial in Jerusalem.
I like Nehemiah’s attitude! As you’re going about God’s business, detractors will come along. Remember that they have no part in God’s plan for you. Your enemies have no portion and will receive no memorial in your destiny. They don’t get a vote. So arise and build knowing that the God of Heaven, He will prosper you!
Success and Progress!
