When we engage in serving God, opposition from Satan is unavoidable. The devil uses many tactics, but his opposition will not stop the work of the church because the Lord fights for his people. Nehemiah’s response: “Pray, pray, pray and work!”
Scripture: Psalm 3

Sermon Text: Nehemiah 4

My Next Steps

Point to Ponder: Nehemiah was an ordinary man who trusted in an extraordinary God. He had the attitude: Show me the size of your problem and I’ll show you the size of my God! Why can we have this same attitude and what would it look like in your life if you reflected this?

Treasure to Share: “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.” Nehemiah 4:14

Action to Take: Where’s your spot “on the wall” where you can say, “Now that is something I can do”? Consider it from a couple perspectives:

1) In the Church (for example: volunteering, witnessing, encouraging, giving, serving, praying, playing, hosting, mentoring, leading, coordinating, etc.) For some outside-the-box ideas check out the WELS Kingdom Workers website www.kingdomworkers.com

2) In your community

3) In your family

4) For a worthy cause (for example: supporting your local pregnancy help center (ask Pastor Ben how!), helping out the Hunger Task Force, volunteering with My Team Triumph, ____________.)
