Understand and Speak the competition’s Language

“We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and we are rebuilding the temple that was built many years ago, one that a great king of Israel built and finished. 
“However, in the first year of Cyrus king of Babylon, King Cyrus issued a decree to rebuild this house of God. Ezra 5

The adversaries of the Israelites took advantage of the death of Cyrus and wrote a letter to Xerxes the new king. While the desired effect was to stop the work on the temple, they focused only on the interests on the king; sovereignty and revenue in form of taxes, tributes and duty.

For your presentation to be effective, you need to be able to see from the other’s view point. When you seek first to understand, you also earn yourself the right to be understood and possibly appreciated.

Always negotiate from a position of strength. Darius may not be interested in building a temple in Jerusalem, but he can’t knowingly go against a decree made by Cyrus the Great, the king reputed for being the founder of the Achaemenid Empire without serious consequences which can break his own throne.

You must understand the language of the trade; the decision to rebuild the temple was issued in a decree, the resolution to stop building was an order or a command. A decree is superior to an order, once the original decree was substantiated; the king’s wisest decision was to align himself.

Every discouragement you have experienced is simply an order, but there is a supreme decree from God to rebuild your life and make it the best it could ever be. As it says in the book of Psalms 102:16, For the Lord will rebuild Zion and appear in his glory.

For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her vindication shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. The nations will see your vindication, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow. You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God.

No longer will they call you Deserted, or name your land Desolate. But you will be called Hephzibah,[a] and your land Beulah[b]; for the Lord will take delight in you, and your land will be married. As a young man marries a young woman, so will your Builder marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you. Isaiah 62:1-5

Communication towards God can lessen the burden we are currently carrying. Every one of us has a silent language towards God where we can communicate our needs and wants through prayer. A prayer every night where so tell us God the things that we did during the whole day and asking for forgiveness is the best way to get through him. We can also include in our prayers the safety and health of our loved ones and saying thank you for all the blessings that he gave. God is always there for all of us, guiding us to the right path of our life.
