Why is this not working??
Quick study. Jesus, you delight me with the ways you reveal yourself. I spend time studying and reading each morning and learn something new, don’t get me wrong. I do learn in those time. But then there are those times that some one reads something, a short little conversation and this thing smacks you right in the face and you face plant into a deep hard core truth of the ONE. Thank you Jesus. For your constant reminders. You are so good to me.
Haggai 1: 3–7 Then the Lord sent this message through the prophet Haggai: “Why are you living in luxurious houses while my house lies in ruins? This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: Look at what’s happening to you! You have planted much but harvest little. You eat but are not satisfied. You drink but are still thirsty. You put on clothes but cannot keep warm. Your wages disappear as though you were putting them in pockets filled with holes!
Haggai 1:8 Now go up into the hills, bring down timber, and rebuild my house. Then I will take pleasure in it and be honored, says the LORD.
You are attempting to all this on your own and it is failing. You are living in this world but you are not supposed to be of this world. As a result you need to…
GO to the Hill — — — Worship the Lord Your God, confess and leave it on the altar.
Bring down the Timber — — — Take up your cross. Choose to follow Jesus. His ways. His Path. It is not easy. You have to choose NOT to sin. It starts in your mind and works its way out. Sin starts with a thought and leads to death. Taking up our Cross is a choice to LAY ourSELVES down. And follow His way of thinking. Taking every thought captive and checking them for His Light and Way.
Rebuild my house — — — Rebuild your relationship and your soul to align with the ONE who laid His all down for you. Grow in the Lord. Reading the word, Praying. Loving Others. He did say. Love the Lord Your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength AND Love your neighbor as yourself.
THEN I will take pleasure in you. You can not have a ‘rich’ life on the outside if you proclaim God with your lips and yet your inside is as a white washed tomb. Full of death. Empty of Godliness. Seeking the world and not seeking God.
Seek First the Kingdom Of Heaven and all else will be added to you!
