From Obedience to Blessing
“From this day I will bless you.” ~ Haggai 2:19 Future things are hidden from us. Yet here is a glass in which we may see the unborn years. The Lord says, “From this day I will bless you.” Note the day that is referred to in this promise. There had been failure of crops, blasting, and mildew – all because of the people’s sin. Now, the Lord saw these chastened ones commencing to obey His word and build His temple, therefore He says, “From this day I will bless you.” If we have lived in any sin, and the Spirit leads us to purge ourselves of it, we may reckon upon the blessing of the Lord. His smile, His Spirit, His grace, His fuller revelation of His truth will all prove to us an enlarged blessing. Lord, I am resolved to be more true to You and I pray, therefore, that You will increase the blessedness of my daily life henceforth and forever.
