We’ll be opposed by those on our own team, the ones who are supposed to take direction from us, as they express dissatisfaction or lack of confidence in our leadership.
We’ll be opposed by peers who interject their own ideas for the project, either intentionally or unintentionally derailing us from God’s blueprints.
We’ll be opposed by those in authority who don’t agree with our strategies, feel threatened by our success, or have a different agenda.
Sometimes their opposition will bring our work to a screeching halt.
In that moment, when our goal seems far off and our dreams seem to be slipping through our fingers, we must cling to the knowledge that God is in control.
God’s timing is not our own.
But God’s plans will not be thwarted.
The Israelites had to hit pause on their building project.
But their story wasn’t over.
Neither is ours.
