Haggai 1:6-7Living Bible (TLB)
6 You plant much but harvest little. You have scarcely enough to eat or drink and not enough clothes to keep you warm. Your income disappears, as though you were putting it into pockets filled with holes!
7 “Think it over,” says the Lord Almighty. “Consider how you have acted and what has happened as a result!
This is a self check scripture for sure!
We LOVE to blame everything wrong in our life on the devil. He gets far too much credit for things we have actually done to ourselves.
What have we done to cause this lack? What have we done to not have enough? Have we considered our own lifestyle? Our very own (nobody made me do it but me) choices. Have we pointed the blame at everyone but whom the blame lies?
The scripture says “think it over”
Have we expected good to come to us when we are NOT following the ways of God? Have we cherry picked the handful of scriptures and only applied those to our lives and expected to reap the benefits of all 66 books, 1189 chapters and 31,173 verses?
How does your life line up with the scripture? Are you experiencing any of the above?
If our answer is yes, then we have some thinking, considering and repenting to do.
