Paused To Ponder

Then the word of the Lord came by Haggai the prophet saying, ‘Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, and this temple to lie in ruins?’ Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts: "Consider your ways! You have sown much, and bring in little; you eat, but do not have enough; you drink, but you are not filled with drink; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; and he who earns wages, earns wages to put into a bag with holes.’ Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Consider your ways! Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,’ says the Lord. - Haggai 1:3-8.

Read this verse for my devotion and it made me paused to ponder on the relationship I have with God and the priority that I should have in living my life for His glory and pleasure. A nudge from the Holy Spirit awakens my spirit man. Empty words filled my mouth but a circling storyboard of my walk with My Father fills my mind. Nothing more that I can express in writing at this moment, till then....... God Bless!

  1. Well... i gotta say... I seldom touch the book of Haggai...Not really a popular book in the Old Testament but nonetheless, sometimes the message there is so real and true in our daily lifes... ^^
