Haggai 1:9 NLT
You hoped for rich harvests, but they were poor. And when you brought your harvest home, I blew it away. Why? Because My house lies in ruins, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, while all of you are busy building your own fine houses.
We’ve been studying portion from the books of the Bible. Today let’s study from the book of this minor prophet.
This verse is a prophetic declaration! And, it is true in many of our lives today. As, many of us, are constantly busy, constantly occupied, constantly engaged with the world. What for? It is not to save the lost, make disciples or reach the hungry, not to care for ones who don’t have anybody but to build our own kingdoms.
Jesus taught us to pray this way, when you pray, pray like this: may Your kingdom come, may Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
We don’t like to practically apply this in our lives being in pursuit of our own plans and will.
Do you know why you have been working so hard and the outcome has been so little? Do you know why, you’re bringing home this salary and within a few days this is not enough to take care of your expense?
It’s because the Lord says, “You are no longer building my house!”
If only you can realign by building His house when you are in the field. Are you expanding His kingdom?
We don’t build the house Monday to Friday and we expect we are doing a good job on Sunday thinking we are building God’s house.
Building God’s house requires a continual commitment from Monday morning all the way to Sunday night (24*7).
Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy saying, “You need to endure suffering as a soldier of Christ Jesus.” This would mean we need to be watchful at all times.
Next 30 days make a decision on building the house of God and watch how your finances begins to shift.
The Lord tells you to come back to His house and see how He takes care of your house!
