Opposition – “Your opposition may be internal or external but the proposition you live for MUST be eternal.”
Scripture: Nehemiah 2:9-10

When I am praying to God, sometimes all I can see is my own failure. The enemy turns this on me and accuses me. I often hear words in my head that tell me I can’t do something because of my past, this is classic internal opposition. There will be opposition. There is the enemy of self and my own doubt that can cripple me into cowardly inaction. There is Satan, who is literally prowling around to destroy me, and there are others. Yes, the doubters, haters, and those who will come against the vision God has for me; external opposition. Jesus, help me to pray with passion and and use love as a tool to shine your light as I complete the mission you have for me in this world. Remind me of my place in your Kingdom and your love for those you have called me to serve.
