After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your people, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.” When our enemies heard that we were aware of their plot and that God had frustrated it, we all returned to the wall, each to our own work.
Nehemiah 04:14-15 (TNIV)
Biblical Truth: Fear is an enemy that deceives, with God as our leader we are made strong and able to go on with His work. Through prayer and vigilance we are able to stand up for all that is right and all that we cherish.
