  • How do you handle opposition?

  • Do you ignore it hoping it will go away?

  • Are you overcome with opposition and paralysed to act on it?

  • Do you try to avoid opposition by working around it?

  • Do you amplify the problem until no amount of leadership can solve it? (Why make the problem difficult if with a little more effort you can make it impossible?)

  • Do you face the opposition and problem confronting you from God’s perspective and trust Him to lead you through it?


Dealing with opposition to leadership nehemiah 4 6

  • James 1:2-8 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,whenever you face trials (opposition)of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
