SPIRITUAL. In Haggai 2, God declared there would be greater glory to the second temple than to the first. The glory wasn’t in the physical building but in who possessed the building.
Some times we have to restart from the rubble and wonder if things will ever be the same or will ever get better. Let me say to you that things may never be the same and that could be the best thing for you. Greater comes, even if it looks different the second time around. So, please allow the word below to inspire you to not hold back. Give it a go and give it your best! Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not yet, but we have today!
“‘So get to work, Zerubbabel!’— God is speaking. “‘Get to work, Joshua son of Jehozadak—high priest!’ “‘Get to work, all you people!’— God is speaking. “‘Yes, get to work! For I am with you.’ The God -of-the-Angel-Armies is speaking! ‘Put into action the word I covenanted with you when you left Egypt. I’m living and breathing among you right now. Don’t be timid. Don’t hold back……I own the silver, I own the gold.’ Decree of God -of-the-Angel-Armies. “‘This Temple is going to end up far better than it started out, a glorious beginning but an even more glorious finish: a place in which I will hand out wholeness and holiness.’ Decree of God -of-the-Angel-Armies.” (Haggai 2:4, 5, 8, 9 MSG)
