The Trouble with Rubble "When Obedience brings Opposition" Nehemiah 4 Have you ever found that the closer you walk with The Lord, There more grief you get from unbelievers. This shouldn’t surprise us. In John chapter 17, Jesus tell us that "we are no more of the world than He is." And that "the world will hate us, Because of Him." So it is no surprise that when the Lord is working through us, the enemies of God will try to thwart whatever God is trying to accomplish through us. And it was no different for Nehemiah. God gave Nehemiah the task of rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem. And it seems no sooner did he lay the first brick, that there came opposition from the enemies of God. "The trouble with Rubble" is a message originally delivered in 2001 by Don Howatt at Eastgate Bible Chapel. In this message Don relates how Nehemiah dealt with opposition and discouragement , and how believers today can do the same.
