Isaiah 62:9 NLT
“You raised the grain, and you will eat it, praising the Lord. Within the courtyards of the Temple, you yourselves will drink the wine you have pressed.”
Series: The Book of Isaiah
The one reason that we are not able to worship God is because we are not really looking at Jesus but our circumstances. The more you see at the circumstances, you will always find things to complain about but when you look at Jesus you will find a fresh reason to worship Him.
God is speaking to the Israelites who worked hard but couldn’t benefit from it because the enemy had completely destroyed their land and every thing in it, but God is saying when He restores His favour over them they will eat the same grain that they have raised.
Often it happens that you do and speak the right things but you don’t see the results, but God says that this is the season that the harvest that is appointed for you will not delay.
One of the reason that we do not experience the blessings of God is because we are not inside the courtyards of the temple.
One day we were praying against the attacks that were coming agains the people in our church and suddenly the Holy Spirit spoke through a sister saying that these attacks are coming against the people because of inconsistency in their attendance to church. At first we couldn’t believe it but then God started revealing to us that sometimes when we are outside the temple and outside His presence, it automatically brings attacks from the enemy.
One way that you can eat the fruit of your labor is by remaining in the courtyard.
The next thing is that your presence in the presence of the Lord should be accompanied by your devotion in worshiping, praying and loving Jesus.
When you live a lifestyle like that the bible says you will raise the grain, and you will eat it, you will drink the wine that you yourselves has pressed.
Hope this will encourage your spirit to pursue God better.
