"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 4:15} NIV

I am so glad to be writing to you today. Yesterday I wasn't feeling well, and didn't write, but today I am back. I immediately connected with this verse because I love the fact that God does frustrate the enemy. Nehemiah lived in a very uncertain day, but was given the opportunity to secure Jerusalem again, and have the people return. Those who lived there already did whatever they could to help the effort. This is an excellent picture of what Jesus wants from us as His church. He is the Head no doubt, but we as His people need to do whatever He has said for us to do, and do it well.

This involves us, interacting in love with fellow believers and through this the world will see the love we have for one another, and for our Heavenly Father. Sounds idealistic, you might say, but this is His plan. What happens is friction comes in when we have our own goals in front of us, and not His. Our enemy loves to put a poison into our minds that will cut down or hinder someone else, and there goes the flow of life and proper fellowship. Will you plan this week, this year, to cut down the enemy's schemes instead of him cutting you or someone else?  Blessings
