Faith Training: Expecting and Overcoming Resistance Against God's Calling

This episode is really a sequel to the Faith Training that I posted on Tuesday. In this episode, I discuss the opposition that Nehemiah faced as he set out to do what God was calling him to do. We know from this book of the Bible that we can expect resistance against God's calling on our lives. I go into the deeper meaning behind the passages of Scripture and the tactics that Satan uses to throw us off the path of God's plan. Watch the video:

We will be better at recognizing and overcoming Satan's tactics when we know what they are.

The Opposition in Nehemiah:

1. Confusion

2. Distraction

3. Accusation

4. Fear

By staying in God's Word and staying in a close relationship with our Heavenly Father, we can better discern Satan's tactics and resist temptation. As it states in Ephesians 6:17, God's Word is the sword of the Spirit. Prayer and professing God's promises from His Word are our best offensive weapons to stand against the devil's schemes.

By investing in our time in prayer and reading God's Word, we invest in what's eternal. Will you carve out time to spend in God's presence each day?
