Haggai 2:4 NLT: 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 dear friend in Christ, today’s message is a consolation from the Lord our God to all His people. He says be strong and get to work for He is with you. Do not think for a moment you can fail if God is with you. It is not possible to fail with God by your side. No one is compared to Him and so He cannot fail in His promise to protect you.
Many have given up hope because of what they are seeing daily and experiencing in their lives. The challenges bedevilling them from every side is making their hearts weary. But the Lord is calling on you to be strong. Don’t allow all the challenges to overwhelm you. Don’t loose faith in God. Even if others are turning to other gods for help, don’t ever consider it or join them because the Lord God Almighty will judge the gods of this world in due time.
God cannot tell you to be strong and then abandon you midway. He will surely fulfill His promises in your life. He never promised a life devoid of challenges and that is why He said that in the midst of the fire, He will be with you and when you pass through the waters, you will not drown. Isaiah 43:2. May the Lord remain your strength. Shalom.
Declare to yourself loud: the lord is my strength.
- Precious Holy Spirit my strengthner, I depend on you to keep me strong in the Lord, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
- Please add your personal intentions.
