Enemies and Opposition

"Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other." -Isaiah 45:22

While preaching from Isaiah 45:22, Spurgeon points out that God raises up enemies and opposition to teach us that He alone is God and there is no other. He writes:
But that opposition through which God carries his servants, leads them to see at once that he is God, and there there is none else. If every one applauded, if all were gratified, we should think ourselves God; but when they hiss and hoot, we turn to God and cry, 'If on my face, for thy dear name, Shame and reproach should be, I'll hail reproach and welcome shame, If thou'lt remember me.'
