    • Pastor Mark Lopez - 2.7.10 “ Without Victory, There Is No Survival”
      • Success – the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors.
      Success
      • Teach us to make the most of our time… and make our efforts successful. Yes make our efforts successful!
      Psalm 90:12, 17
      • 11 So I arrived in Jerusalem. Three days later, 12 I slipped out during the night, taking only a few others with me. I had not told anyone about the plans God had put in my heart for Jerusalem. We took no pack animals with us except the donkey I was riding. 13 After dark I went out through the Valley Gate, past the Jackal’s Well,[ a ] and over to the Dung Gate to inspect the broken walls and burned gates. 14 Then I went to the Fountain Gate and to the King’s Pool, but my donkey couldn’t get through the rubble. 15 So, though it was still dark, I went up the Kidron Valley [ b ] instead, inspecting the wall before I turned back and entered again at the Valley Gate.
      Nehemiah 2:11-20 (NLT)
      • 16 The city officials did not know I had been out there or what I was doing, for I had not yet said anything to anyone about my plans. I had not yet spoken to the Jewish leaders—the priests, the nobles, the officials, or anyone else in the administration. 17 But now I said to them, “You know very well what trouble we are in. Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been destroyed by fire. Let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem and end this disgrace!” 18 Then I told them about how the gracious hand of God had been on me, and about my conversation with the king.
      •     They replied at once, “Yes, let’s rebuild the wall!” So they began the good work.
      •   19 But when Sanballat, Tobiah, and Geshem the Arab heard of our plan, they scoffed contemptuously. “What are you doing? Are you rebelling against the king?” they asked.
      •   20 I replied, “The God of heaven will help us succeed. We, his servants, will start rebuilding this wall. But you have no share, legal right, or historic claim in Jerusalem.”
      Nehemiah 2:11-20 (NLT) (cont.)
      • WHEN GOD BEGINS TO SPEAK TO YOUR HEART, KEEP LISTENING.
      • In Nehemiah 2:12b – Evidence God spoke to Nehemiah’s heart.
      • Nehemiah 2:12b
      • “ I had not told anyone about the plans God had put in my heart for Jerusalem.”
      • WHEN THE BATTLE IS MOST INTENSE, KEEP GOING.
      • “ If you are going through hell, keep going” Winston Churchhill
      • So I continued the work with even greater determination.
      Nehemiah v.9b (NLT)
      • Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. [14] Stand firm then…
      Ephesians 6:13
      • I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
      Philippians 3:14
      • WHEN THE ENEMY PLANTS SEEDS OF DOUBT, KEEP BELIEVING.
      • They were hoping to intimidate me and make me sin. Then they would be able to accuse and discredit me.
      Nehemiah 6:13 (NLT)
      • For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
      I Timothy 1:7
      • We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. [9] We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.
      II Corinthians 4:8-9
      • WHEN VICTORY IS ACCOMPLISHED, KEEP CELEBRATING.
      • 27 For the dedication of the new wall of Jerusalem, the Levites throughout the land were asked to come to Jerusalem to assist in the ceremonies. They were to take part in the joyous occasion with their songs of thanksgiving and with the music of cymbals, harps, and lyres. 28 The singers were brought together from the region around Jerusalem… 31 I led the leaders of Judah to the top of the wall and organized two large choirs to give thanks.
      Nehemiah 12:27-31
      • The entire people gave Glory to God for their victory and success.
    • “ Without Victory, There Is No Survival”
