INCREASE IN STRENGTH AMIDST PRESSURE

For they all were trying to make us afraid, saying, “Their hands will be weakened in the work, and it will not be done.” Now therefore, O God, strengthen my hands
Nehemiah 6:9 (NKJV)
 
Some few days ago, I shared with you NOT TO TREMOR AT OPPOSITION.
In that discussion, I established that, as long as you are involved in God’s agenda you will be opposed.
We see in the above verse how those who opposed the building of the walls of Jerusalem attempted to make Nehemiah and his team afraid.
One of the greatest cause of weakness in the pursuit of God’s purpose is fear.
The moment you become afraid that you will fail or will not be able to complete the task, you weaken yourself from doing what God wants you to do.
The more you exercise confidence that with God you shall do valiantly, the more you increase in strength.
When you consider the seemingly pressure or the oppositions you face or may face in the pursuit of purpose, you will stagger in faith.
There will be times you may not have support from your best friends or the people you trust.
But that shouldn’t derail you.
Look at Paul (the apostle’s) testimony:
 
At my first defense no one stood with me, but all forsook me. May it not be charged against them. But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the message might be preached fully through me, and that all the Gentiles might hear. Also I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.” 2 Timothy 4:16-17 (NKJV)
 
Glory to God!!!
This is the certainty of our faith!!!
No matter the pressure or opposition, beloved, we turn to God.
It is by the strength of God you will prevail not your human strength nor intelligence.
When you turn away from the pressure and you turn to God you increase in strength.
Just as Nehemiah did:
 
“For they all were trying to make us afraid, saying, “Their hands will be weakened in the work, and it will not be done.”Now therefore, O God, strengthen my hands
Nehemiah 6:9 (NKJV)
 
Nehemiah chose to pray to God for strength. That was all he needed to complete the work.
Now look at what happened:
 
” So the wall was finished on the twenty-fifth day of Elul, in fifty-two days. And it happened, when all our enemies heard of it, and all the nations around us saw these things, that they were very disheartened in their own eyes; for they perceived that this work was done by our God”Nehemiah 6:15-16 (NKJV)
 
When the strength of God is supplied to you can only have the God kind of results.
Increase in strength!!!

DIG DEEPER:
(Psalm 138:3; Psalm 28:7; Psalm 46:1; Daniel 10:19)
 
WE PRAY:
Oh Lord, strengthen our hands for this work you have committed to us that we will not stagger no matter the opposition or pressure that will confront us.
 
BIBLE READING:
DAY 146: 2 Chronicles 32-34
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS
– I don’t stagger in faith.
– By the strength of God, I prevail.
– With God I do valiantly.
– I don’t lack strength, I increase in strength by the day.
– I don’t consider the opposition or pressure, I turn to God.
Oh Hallelujah, Gloreeeey!!!
