Topic: You Can Be Unstoppable
[DCLM Daily Manna 1 February 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]
Text: Nehemiah 6:15,16 (KJV)
Key Verse: “And it came to pass, that when all our enemies heard thereof, and all the heathen that were about us saw these things, they were much cast down in their own eyes: for they perceived that this work was wrought of our God” (Nehemiah 6:16).
In all ages, men have always constituted themselves as opposition to the work of God. They have always waged relentless war against His will and purpose. But the truth is that in spite of their threats, the counsel of the Lord shall stand.
Regardless of all the opposition, Nehemiah and those faithful people who worked with him, accomplished their goal. Expectedly, the enemies were disheartened when they saw the work. They knew that if under that great opposition, the Jews were still able to complete the work of building the walls, then nothing could stop them.
Believers must not lose sleep over the offensive push from enemies. They are the descendants of Tobiah and Sanbalat who never wanted to see the progress of the Jews.
Every God-given assignment that is destined to glorify Him is always a subject of contention. It provokes a fierce battle from the kingdom of darkness. Even the devil himself and his cohorts know that every God-given destiny carries potentials that are capable of paralysing the activities of his kingdom. Therefore, he will always fight to see that such tasks are never accomplished.
A winner cannot emerge without battles. You cannot be a champion without experiencing myriads of life challenges and battles. Just as our redemption did not come without battles, no good victory will come without a battle.
As you go about your business today, always remember God’s promises. He said, “Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake” (Isaiah 54:15).
Thought For The Day: Think less of the devil’s limited power but more of God’s limitless power.
