Haggai – Day 18

Haggai 2:5

This is what I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt. And my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.

The Thought

The year of Haggai’s message was 520BC. The Israelite people had escaped from Egypt about a thousand years earlier! God’s covenants are everlasting!

This is what we read about the time of that covenant: The Israelites groaned in their slavery and cried out, and their cry for help because of their slavery went up to God.
God heard their groaning and He remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob. So God looked on the Israelites and was concerned about them – (Exodus 2:23-25)

God remembered His covenant! We would think, “How could He forget?” Of course He doesn’t ever forget, but He is often waiting for us to remind Him to keep His promises before His own eyes as well as ours.

His covenant with Abraham can be found in Genesis 15:18: To your descendants I give this land from the Wadi to the great river the Euphrates.

The covenant with the Israelites began when Moses became Israel’s leader and brought them out of slavery. God had, and still has, a plan to solve every problem that His people struggle with.

As we look at our world today, there are many problems, it’s good to remind ourselves from time to time that God sees them all, understands our sufferings, and knows what He is going to do about them.


Read Exodus 2 today and be encouraged that God has the problems of today in His hands. Pray for Him to raise up Godly leaders.

Remind yourself in whatever battle you are struggling with at the moment that the enemy is a beaten foe and God will bring good out of the struggles, if we stay the course. Pray for help to stay your course!
