• The Word of God through Haggai Devotional

    Haggai 1:1

    Only if God is thoroughly active in everything that ever happens can we be confident that He has an actual purpose for everything that occurs. From the acts of the greatest generals in history to the seemingly inconsequential casting of a stone into the sea, all that we see and experience occurs according to God’s perfect plan and wise governance. The little details of life really do matter. Why? Because they matter enough to the Lord for Him to work in and through them. View Resource

  • Foolish Priorities Devotional

    Haggai 1:2-11

    The Bible warns us not to make a one-to-one correlation between God’s favor and our success. However, that does not mean that we should not be alert to disobedience being a potential reason for why we might find ourselves in trouble. Failure is an opportunity to reflect on faithfulness. When we are struggling, we must not automatically assume that it is because the Lord is displeased with us, but neither must we immediately discount it as a possibility. View Resource

  • The Latter Glory of the Lord’s House Devotional

    Haggai 1:12-2:9

    In one form or another, God’s people will suffer under the exilic conditions of pain and difficulty until Christ returns. The exile of the Jews from the Promised Land is ultimately a picture of the exile of all humanity from the garden, and as with full restoration to the Promised Land, full restoration to the garden and face-to-face fellowship with the Lord will not occur until corporate repentance occurs—until all of the elect come to faith. Let us pray daily that this would happen. View Resource
