Morning & Evening Devotional
Ye looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the Lord of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house. Haggai 1:9 (KJV):

Morning Devotional: The verse from Haggai 1:9 reminds us of the importance of prioritizing God’s work and the consequences of neglecting it. In this verse, the people of Israel had been seeking abundance and prosperity but were met with disappointment. The Lord asks, “Why?” The answer lies in the neglect of God’s house, which was in ruins, while they focused on their own homes.

As we begin this day, let’s reflect on the following:

  1. Priorities: Consider your priorities. Are you giving due attention to God’s work and your spiritual life, or have other concerns taken precedence?
  2. Consequences of Neglect: The verse speaks of blessings that “came to little” and the Lord “blowing upon” their efforts. This serves as a reminder that when we neglect our relationship with God and His work, we may not experience the fullness of His blessings.
  3. Recommitment: Take a moment to recommit yourself to God’s work, both in your personal spiritual journey and in your service to others. Just as the people of Israel needed to rebuild the Lord’s house, what might you need to rebuild or renew in your own spiritual life?

Let’s begin the day by realigning our priorities, seeking to honor God, and remembering that His blessings often flow when we put His work at the forefront of our lives.

Evening Devotional: As we come to the close of this day, reflect on the message from Haggai 1:9. In the morning, we talked about the consequences of neglecting God’s work and the importance of setting our priorities right.

Evening Thought

Everything sublunary is on the move, time knows nothing of rest. The solid earth is a rolling ball, and the great sun himself a star obediently fulfilling its course around some greater luminary. Tides move the sea, winds stir the airy ocean, friction wears the rock: change and death rule everywhere. The sea is not a miser’s storehouse for a wealth of waters, for as by one force the waters flow into it, by another they are lifted from it. Men are born but to die: everything is hurry, worry, and vexation of spirit. Friend of the unchanging Jesus, what a joy it is to reflect upon thy changeless heritage; thy sea of bliss which will be for ever full, since God himself shall pour eternal rivers of pleasure into it. We seek an abiding city beyond the skies, and we shall not be disappointed. The passage before us may well teach us gratitude. Father Ocean is a great receiver, but he is a generous distributor. What the rivers bring him he returns to the earth in the form of clouds and rain. That man is out of joint with the universe who takes all but makes no return. To give to others is but sowing seed for ourselves. He who is so good a steward as to be willing to use his substance for his Lord, shall be entrusted with more. Friend of Jesus, art thou rendering to him according to the benefit received? Much has been given thee, what is thy fruit? Hast thou done all? Canst thou not do more? To be selfish is to be wicked. Suppose the ocean gave up none of its watery treasure, it would bring ruin upon our race. God forbid that any of us should follow the ungenerous and destructive policy of living unto ourselves. Jesus pleased not himself. All fulness dwells in him, but of his fulness have all we received. O for Jesus’ spirit, that henceforth we may live not unto ourselves!


Before we rest for the night, consider these questions:

  1. Did today’s activities reflect your commitment to God’s work and your spiritual well-being?
  2. Were there moments when you prioritized your own interests over what you believe God is calling you to do?
  3. What steps can you take tomorrow to better align your actions with your spiritual values?

In your evening prayers, seek forgiveness for any moments of neglect and recommit yourself to following God’s will and serving His purposes. May you find peace and renewed purpose as you lay your day before the Lord.
