Today’s Prayer

“Hear my cry, O God: Attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You have been a shelter for me. A strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings” (Psalm 61:1-4). Please calm our souls and be our shelter always. We praise You and worship You, Almighty God and loving Father. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for who You are and all You have done and all You will do, from moment to moment and age to age. You are worthy of honor and praise and glory. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

When Planting Yields No Fruit

You have planted much, but have harvested little…. – Haggai 1:6

Have you ever worked and worked only to get very little from your efforts? The bible tells us that such was the case for the believers during the time of the prophet Haggai. Finally, God spoke through the prophet Haggai to inform the people why their efforts were not yielding any fruit. There was a specific reason this was happening.

“You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?” declares the Lord Almighty. “Because of My house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with his own house. Therefore, because of you the heavens have withheld their dew and the earth its crops. I called for a drought on the fields and the mountains, on the grain, the new wine, the oil and whatever the ground produces, on men and cattle, and on the labor of your hands” (Haggai 1:9-11).

God had finally had enough. His priorities were not His people’s priorities. So, He withheld in order to get their attention. Zerubbabel was governor of Judah at the time. He was a godly man who sought to do God’s will. He listened as the prophet gave these words; then he responded.

Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the whole remnant of the people obeyed the voice of the Lord their God and the message of the prophet Haggai, because the Lord their God had sent him. And the people feared the Lord (Haggai 1:12).

Sometimes God has to stir up the spirit of one man to initiate needed change. Zerubbabel was that man. Scriptures say, “The Lord stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel” (Hag. 1:14). God is stirring up the spirit of a remnant of believers throughout the world today. They are seeing what breaks God’s heart, and they’re responding.

Has God placed the spirit of Zerubbabel in you?

Are you one who will make a difference for the Kingdom, or are you concerned about building bigger and better barns?

The Lord is calling forth His people in these last days to make a difference. Ask Him what He wants to do through you.

Quote of the Day

Who a man is, is not important; what he knows does not matter but what he is to the inscrutable God is what matters. If we displease God, does it matter whom we please? If please Him, does it matter whom we displease?
