Haggai 2:7-8 NLT:I will shake all the nations, and the treasures of all the nations will be brought to this Temple. I will fill this place with glory, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.
My beloved friend in Christ, the scripture is reminding us today that our God is the God of provisions. He owns everything on this earth. The silver and gold belong to Him. It is an error for anyone to claim ownership of anything in this world. In God’s kingdom, we don’t own anything rather we have access to everything. Owners are indeed rebels who are literally saying that God is lying.
God Himself said He will cause the nations to bring their treasures to His temple. Guess what, we are the temple of the living God. Glory! We need no longer be afraid of lack. Our trust should be in what our God has said. We are to pray that He will cause the nations to bring their treasures our way. It is not about your struggle or how smart you are. It is about Him being glorified in our lives for the things He is doing. When this happens, every little action you take will cause an overflow of provisions. Men will suddenly begin to favor you without any effort on your path. Stay with God and you will never run out of provisions. Shalom.
Declare to yourself loud: the lord is my provider.
- Heavenly father, cause the nations of the earth to bring their treasures to me.
- Oh Lord my God, help me to always recognize your divine provisions in my life.
- Heavenly Father, provide for all men who are in need of provisions. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
- Please add your personal intentions.
