There comes a time in a person’s life when you realize someone is out to get you. What do you do with that? With all that’s going on in your world, why would someone be out to get you?
“I realized they were plotting to harm me…” – Nehemiah
Nehemiah realized. It’s one thing to think that someone is out for you, but when you realize that it’s so is a different story. He realized that someone was plotting to harm him. What a blow? What a blow for you? Here it is your working to accomplish your goals, your dreams, your prayers and someone is out to make your way difficult. This is certainly a time to pray. I call this an opportunity for a worry-exchange. When I have cares, concerns, or worries, it’s an opportunity to give them to God. Let’s do it.
Lord, I’ve come to realize that someone is plotting to do me harm and it’s a concern for me. So, I’m taking this opportunity for worry to exchange it in prayer and give my concerns over to You. I’ll not let this worry me a moment longer in Jesus’ name.
Your Action (What action based on your prayer can you take?):
While it’s normal to let worry set in when we realize we have people out to sabotage us, I resist the urge to worry and rest in the assurance that God has it.
