Be Strong and Work
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:
Are you feeling tried or slowed down with all the resistance that is coming your way? Is the discouragement getting to you? Does the attitude of the people disappointing you? Is the light (hope) in you getting dim?
Do not let this happen to you. The Lord is saying BE STRONG I AM WITH YOU.
In the scriptures if you read where ever the Lord has appeared, it so happens that an Angel of the Lord has appeared. Human cannot come in direct presence of the Lord, it is always the Angels of the Lord, who are part of the Heavenly Body of the Lord who appear unto man. When the Lord says I AM WITH YOU, it means the Heavenly army is at your disposal to help you and protect you. You can not make use of them or let them operate for you unless you open the spiritual gate of faith. So open wide the gates of faith and fear not nor be discouraged, move forward and continue the Lord's work, for the Heavenly army is standing right behind you.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, as You were with Elisha, You are with me. This You have assured me again today through your Word. Lord I am sorry that I let You down, but today I assure You with all my strength I will move forward to do the work You have sent me to do. I pray for my other associates in Jesus Christ that their eyes may also be open and may they see the Army of the Lord right behind them. I make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?
16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
17 And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
18 And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.
