Work in Spite of Opposition

To read the Bible in a year, read Ezra 3–5.
The Jews arrived in their homeland and then they gathered together, “And when the seventh month had come, and the children of Israel were in the cities, the people gathered together as one man to Jerusalem” (Ezra 3:1). They came together in unity to do something special, “Then Jeshua the son of Jozadak and his brethren the priests, and Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel and his brethren, arose and built the altar of the God of Israel, to offer burnt offerings on it, as it is written in the Law of Moses the man of God” (Ezra 3:2). God wanted that altar in Jerusalem and the Jews built it in spite of opposition, “Though fear had come upon them because of the people of those countries, they set the altar on its bases; and they offered burnt offerings on it to the LORD, both the morning and evening burnt offerings” (Ezra 3:3).
You have things that God wants you to do and people will oppose you, but follow the commandments of God anyway and later people shall bless you.
