Neh. 4:8-9 “And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it. Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.”
Watching and praying is the best shield against the enemy. Nehemiah wasn’t complacent, or under-estimating the enemy, yet, his prayer and attitude was always that God is all powerful. Aside from praying, he also set a watch. We cannot ignore the commands to be alert, sober and watchful (1Thess 6-8), to resist the enemy (1Pet 5:9), and to put on the full armor of God (Eph 6:11). These things are directed at us to do. Nehemiah knew that dependence upon God was very essential.
