When the prophet Haggai came with a Word from God because the temple was lying in ruins, the people said: “The time has not come, the time that the Lord’s house should be built” (Haggai 1:2). The Holy Spirit is speaking loud and clear to the Church today: “Do you not say, there are still four months and then comes the harvest? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!” (John 4:35).
In the days of Haggai, as the people obeyed the voice of the Lord and the words of the prophet whom God had sent and seized that moment, the Holy Spirit stirred up their spirit and they came and worked on the house of the Lord of hosts, their God. As we listen to what God is saying today and obey His voice and understand that “The time is NOW…” to build the Kingdom of God with “living stones” (souls), so the Lord will do as He promised in Haggai 2:6-9. He said that in the latter days He would shake heaven and earth and fill His temple with glory. He said: “The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine. The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former.” WE are the temple of God, and God wants to fill us with His glory and He is glorified when we are fruitful!
That is why we want to start this year with 21 Days of Prayer. This prayer calendar will help you with daily thoughts to give you direction in your prayers. It is our prayer that the Holy Spirit will not only create and energize in us expectation and vision for a new season by stirring up our spirit, but that He will also alert our hearts to gain spiritual focus, to become sharp and align ourselves with God’s timing for what He desires for us to do!
