With Great Opportunity

1. WITH GREAT OPPORTUNITY COMES GREAT OPPOSITION

“…a great door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me.” (I Corinthians 16:9 NIV)

2. WITH GREAT OPPOSITION, YOU’LL NEED A GREATER ATTITUDE

“…who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should taunt the armies of the living God?’” (I Samuel 17:26 NASB)

“…David said, ‘What have I done now? Is there not a cause?” (I Samuel 17:29 NKJ)

3. STAY TRUE TO A NOBLE CAUSE

“…Then they said, ‘Let us arise and build.’ So they put their hands to the good work. But when Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite official, and Geshem the Arab heard it, they mocked us and despised us and said, ‘What is this thing you are doing?...” (Nehemiah 2:18-19 NASB)

“…they have demoralized the builders. So we built the wall and the whole wall was joined together to half its height, for the people had a mind to work.” (Nehemiah 4:5-6 NASB)

  • OUTLAST YOUR OPPOSITION

“…God had frustrated their plan, then all of us returned to the wall, each one to his work.” (Nehemiah 4:15 NASB)
