"And it happened when our enemies heard that it was known to us, and that God had frustrated their plan, then all of us returned to the wall, each one to his work." (Nehemiah 4:15)
God allows our plans to be shaken so that we can learn lessons of faith.
The second principle we learned, and in a sense are always learning, is that challenges are part of life. Good plans will always be challenged.
Nehemiah found this out over and over again. When he encountered resistance to his plans, Nehemiah set out to pray and take practical steps to hold back the enemy. Each time God frustrated the enemy and released Nehemiah to finish his job.
God allows our plans to be shaken so that we can learn important lessons of faith.
