As we begin a new study in Nehemiah, we’ll learn that we should expect to encounter critics and haters along the way, as we seek to do what God has called us to do. Pastor Ford will explain that any time there is an opportunity, there will always be opposition. Whenever we step out in faith, we better believe something will come along to make us fear. And we need to understand that victory will almost always be followed by a valley.
