Thoughts from Haggai!
I’ve recently read a book in the Bible called Haggai.
Things weren’t going the best for the people... yet when God spoke to them about their lifestyle – they chose to obey Him ‘and worshipped Him in earnest’ (Haggai 1:12).
Because they chose to obey God... this is what God said in response... “I am with you!”.
Wow – who wouldn’t want to hear the Creator of the Universe, God Almighty say ‘I am with you’ to them??!!
Haggai 1:14 says these words ‘sparked enthusiasm’ in the people.
1 Samuel 15:22 says, ‘Obedience is far better than sacrifice. Listening to God is much better than offering the fat of rams’.
Let’s obey God in our lives! He wants the best for us... and He will ‘spark enthusiasm’ in you when you respond to Him with obedience.
Be blessed and know that God is with you as you step out in obedience to Him... and may your enthusiasm be sparked!
