Good morning!
Text:  Haggai; Isaiah 48

 

Be strong, all you people of the land, declares the Lord. Work, for I am with you, declares the Lord of hosts, according to the covenant that I made with you when you came out of Egypt. My Spirit remains in your midst. Fear not.  (Haggai 2:4-5)

Sometimes we get weary in serving the Lord.  Sometimes we feel overwhelmed, perhaps even frightened  When that happens to us, we need to come to this truth.  When we are serving the Lord, He is in the work. He is the Lord of hosts.  That word, “hosts” means “armies”.  The Lord is with us, but He does not come alone.  Whenever we are doing His work, there is a great and powerful army with us for protection and help.  And all along, the Holy Spirit is within us.  Never alone and protected by an army, we need never be disheartened.  What an exciting and empowering thought!
in Him, Mike
