“When Sanbaliat heard that the Jews had begun rebuilding the wall, he was very angry.” Neh 4:1
There are people who enjoy encouraging others but are not so happy when the very same people succeed in life. One of the strategies of satan is to mock you and if you are not moved by his words of discouragement, he uses people to fight with you in order to distract you from walking into God’s plan and purpose. We need to develop a spirit of discernment so that we know who to talk to. The verse says when Sanbaliat heard that Nehemia was rebuilding the walls of Jericho he was very angry… not everyone is happy when you succeed; remember Moses!
