Haggai – Day 22

Haggai 2:10-11

On the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, the word of the Lord came to the prophet Haggai: This is what the Lord Almighty says.

The Thought

In one of my Bibles, these verses and what follows are entitled, “Blessings for a Defiled People”. That is a good thing to remember for our lives today. None of us is perfect. We are all defiled in one way or another. Sometimes that defilement is from our own wrong doings. Sometimes it can be inherited, and sometimes it is other people’s fault for forcing us to do something we never would choose to do. All that is because we live in a fallen world. But amazingly, God still chooses to forgive and bless us!

Paul reminds us in Romans 3:22-24 There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Jesus Christ.

It is good to remind ourselves that Jesus has no favourites. He is the only perfect person who has ever walked the earth, and He died for all people who have ever lived and who will ever live on the earth.

Let us rejoice in that fact today, and leave what The Lord told Haggai to say for tomorrow.


Read a chapter from one of the gospels and rejoice that everything Jesus did He did in love for everyone who would ever live on earth.

Give some thought and prayer to who Jesus is for you personally.

Praise God for His word translated so that all people can understand it. There are still a few people groups who don’t have the gospel in their own language. Praise God for Bible translators who work diligently for them, and pray for the finance to keep the work going.
