Haggai 2: 9 Greater will be the future glory of this house than the former, says the LORD of hosts; And in this place I will give you peace, says the LORD of hosts.
“My beloved, this promise is meant for you and for your generation. The house of God will undergo a great transformation. Up to now it has labored in sweat, toil, and tears to bear fruit. But the Master of the Harvest has decreed a time of pruning. This must be, for the dead wood has accumulated to such a degree that it is choking out the new growth. It must be cut back and burned. Do not fear, but trust in God and pray for those whose hearts have grown cold, who serve gods made by human hands or concocted by human minds. Child, pray and be at peace, for the glory of God’s house will be far, far greater in the time to come than in any time past.”
Lord Jesus, have mercy. May all your children turn to you, trusting in your mercy. Come Lord Jesus and do not delay, for we are in turmoil. Jesus I trust in you! Amen.
