“When Sanvalat the Horoni, Toviyah the servant, the Amoni, and Geshem the Arab heard about it, they began mocking us and jeering, What is this you are doing? Are you going to rebel against the king? But I answered them: The God of heaven will enable us to succeed. Therefore we His servants will set about rebuilding. But you have no share, right or history to commemorate in Jerusalem.”
Nehemiah 2:19-20 CJB
How cool is this and we should take note! The world was coming against Nehemiah, mocking and threatening him. And his answer is we have a historical right to be here, we are obeying God and we will have success in Him!
“You are to follow Adonai your God, fear Him, obey His mitzvot (law), listen to what He says, serve Him and cling to Him.”
Deuteronomy 13:5 CJB
When we hear the world mocking us as we serve the LORD, don’t let it get us down, just keep serving! Even as we see today, the most bizarre things are allowed, but believers gathering together is hindered or mocked!
“How happy is everyone who fears Adonai who lives by His ways.”
Psalm 128:1 CJB
Today, as the unbelieving world mocks us, don’t worry or let it get you down! Just keep serving the LORD!
Have a blessed day!
