Jeremiah 1:18-19 KJV
For, behold, I have made thee this day a defenced city, and an iron pillar, and brasen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against the people of the land.
 And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the Lord, to deliver thee.
Starting a new idea, business or any other initiative comes with it’s own challenges, one of which is opposition from already existing players in that field/industry.
Jeremiah was very hesitant when God set him out on a new path. We see in v18 that even priests who should have encouraged him, were going to oppose him. But God had the final say: He gave the prophet such an assurance of defence like none other; an iron pillar and a bronze wall that is impenetrable. This is our insurance!
These challenges either toughen the originator or break him up completely. I sure this is why one saying goes like, “the cemetery is full of great ideas that never materialized,” or something ike that.
Go all out and do.
God is with you to deliver you, so that no opposition against you should prevail (v19). I pray God will fortify your defenses each day, to resist any form of encroachments.
Have a blessed day.
