O LORD of Heaven’s Armies!
We pull from the promises of Haggai tonight. The people were in a mess then. We are in a mess now. Even though the people failed then and even though we have failed now. You! O LORD! You do not fail us and ALL is not lost, ruined, dead or buried. You are with us and You are the LORD of resurrection power!
“Then Haggai, the Lord’s messenger, gave the people this message from the Lord: “I AM WITH YOU, says the Lord!”
“So the Lord SPARKED the enthusiasm of Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the enthusiasm of Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the enthusiasm of the whole remnant of God’s people. They began to work on the house of their God, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.” Haggai 1:13-14
Thank you LORD for sparks. Thank you LORD for embers of GLORY! You have not forsaken us. You have not forgotten us. You are sparking us forward and stirring us as we move into the great unknown. And all will be well because YOU are there striding ahead of us! O Hallelujah!
“But now the Lord says: Be strong, Zerubbabel. Be strong, Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people still left in the land. And now GET TO WORK, for I AM WITH YOU, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. My Spirit REMAINS among you, just as I promised when you came out of Egypt. So DO NOT BE AFRAID.” Haggai 2:4-5
Thank you LORD! How many times do you tell us that you are with us. How many times do you tell us do not be afraid. Thank you LORD for your precious promises. We rest in them tonight. We will wake tomorrow with a spring in our step and a song in our heart. You will ignite the flame within us and SPARK us with enthusiasm as we advance the Kingdom for your GLORY!
In Jesus name. Amen and amen.
