I Am With You

Haggai 1, 2; Psalm 129; Luke 10

“‘…Be strong all you people of the land,’ declares the Lord, ‘and work. For I am with you,’ declares the Lord Almighty…‘my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.’” Haggai 2:4, 5

Our strength and courage to give our self fully to the work of God’s kingdom, comes from the Holy Spirit. God’s Spirit is not just among us, but he is within us. We are to be strong in the Lord. God’s presence within us overcomes all fear. We fear not because the Living God, the Lord Almighty, has commissioned us to do his work. The building of Christ’s kingdom is a call to go like lambs among wolves, joining Jesus in his harvest. He gives us his authority to pray, preach his good news, and put our feet on spiritual opposition (‘snakes and scorpions’), as overcomers. Nothing is greater than joining God in his work of reaching and freeing those people who are still outside of his family.

“Father, thank you for your Spirit who is with me today. I will not fear; I will walk in your strength, for your glory.”
