‘Haggai 2:4 Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and work: for I am with you, saith the LORD of hosts.’
Good Morning from UCLF.
Every time God commissions a leader, he instructs them to be strong and Courageous. This is because leaders must lead with Courage. Each one of us has been given an area of influence; and so, we are leaders in those particular areas and God holds us responsible. It could be a family, work place, firm management or church fellowship responsibility. You have to decide to be strong while leading by drawing inspiration from the word of God, that never fails (Isaiah 55; 11).
In our theme verse Zerubbabel the Prophet and Joshua the High Priest had the responsibility of commencing the work of building of the temple in Jerusalem. However, they were working with a people that had no willingness to work. God appeared to them and charged them to be strong and courageous for He was with them.
Child of God every time you have a challenging assignment or case before you; always remember this one word. ‘The I AM is with you.’
Blessings at work! Win!
