Don’t you just love those people? You know who I’m talking about. The ones who are always critical of what you’re doing. The ones who discourage you and sap all your energy. The ones who will go so far as to make up stuff about you.
It’s nothing new. Those people have been around forever. Even Ezra and Zerubbabel had to deal with them when they returned to rebuild Jerusalem and the temple. And guess what? Those people were successful! They got the king to send a letter to stop the building!
Crazy, isn’t it? Those people could really get you down if you let them. But we know better. We know the end of the story. We know the city and the temple were rebuilt. And we know that a descendant of David is alive and well and ruling over everyone today!
Oh, He’s not in Jerusalem. He’s living in the hearts and souls of those who love Hi and Keep His commandments. So, the next time you run into one of those people, remember Who is on the throne. And remember that one day every knee will bow!
