Nehemiah 6:9 They were just trying to intimidate us, imagining that they could discourage us and stop the work. So I continued the work with even greater determination. We know that the devil has many names, like Satan, Lucifer, adversary, accuser, serpent...etc.. But here is a new one: The Intimidator. He loves to try and intimidate us with fear tactics and big bluffs, but we need to remember that even though the devil is more powerful than me, he isn't more powerful than He who lives in me! So how do we respond to intimidation? We definitely don't respond by backing down, and we should never respond by giving up. I'm convinced that God allows the enemy to rise up and blow up in front of us so that we might refocus and strengthen our resolve. There is only one way to counter the intimidator. We respond to intimidation with determination, and then we will reach our destination!
