The thing that takes on crystal clarity in the Book of Nehemiah is the reality of opposition. The Christian life is not a playground. It is a battleground. Spiritual warfare is real, and you can be sure that the area of your life that you are rebuilding to the glory of God will be opposed. Paul said, “A great effective door is opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” Here, Nehemiah embodies the “push back faith” that is needed by every Christ-follower.
