There will always be an attack from the enemy when a believer is set in doing the things of God. Nevertheless, this shouldn’t deter you from accomplishing what God has placed in you.
One thing you must know is, you possess everything required for the task/journey ahead, through Christ.
Colossians 2:9 & 10
“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; (10) and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.”
The enemy knows this, hence his continuous attack towards you.
Nehemiah knew the hand of God was on his life. He recognised the task placed on his heart by God; which was to rebuild Jerusalem after its destruction. Like you and I, he encountered adversaries. His enemies made a mockery of him and his team, yet he was not moved (Nehemiah 2:17-20).
What if I told you, you possess the same attitude like Nehemiah? What if I told you their gossip and disbelief in you could be used as a ‘strength-booster’ to get to your destination? What if I told you, you have already won the battle and you need only to believe?
It is very easy to cry and moan over who doesn’t appreciate your calling, gift, work etc, however, this benefits you nothing. Standing up to the enemy through prayer, being focused and disciplined, now that gets the goal achieved.
It is okay if they laugh, let them. You don’t need to explain yourself to every single person. God gave YOU that vision/word not them. So run with it.
In His own time, your work will speak for itself.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
I’m praying for you.
