Daily Devotion: A Tip About Intimidation

Bible Reading: Nehemiah 6:1-9

Key Verse: Verse 2 - “That Sanballat and Geshem sent unto me, saying, Come, let us meet together in some one of the villages in the plain of Ono. But they thought to do me mischief.

Key Words: Come, let us meet together

The key to overcoming intimidation is in taking charge. Never letting the intimidators see you sweat. Isn’t that what Nehemiah did? (See verse 3.)

Not all speakers can introduce humor at the beginning of an address as spontaneously as George Bernard Shaw did when he appeared before a London audience which had applauded him vociferously. He stepped to the front of the platform ready to give his speech. The crowd was calling wildly for him. As the roar subsided, and in that tense moment of silence, just before he begun, a voice from the balcony cried “Blah!” That would have finished many speakers. But not Shaw. He was not intimidated. He looked up and said calmly, “Brother, I agree with you fully, but what can two of us do against so many?”

It’s always wise to remember, if God be for us, then who can be against us?

What to do:
✞ Remember, intimidation is Satan’s way of keeping us from doing things God’s way.
