Nehemiah’s Wall

This morning as I read the book of Nehemiah and study the building of the wall, the relentless pleading of his friends for him to come down is so apparent.  While translating this to modern day challenges, I soon recognize the more my desire to do God’s will, the more seductive my friends become in the guise of doubt, dismay, judgment, criticism and discouragement.  By putting God first, error or evil becomes a bald imposition.

James 4:7 and the first line of 8, reads, “Submit yourselves therefore to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you.”
