The Book Of Haggai | Haggai 1:12-15 - I am With You

Haggai 1:12-15 (KJV) Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the LORD their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet, as the LORD their God had sent him, and the people did fear before the LORD. Then spake Haggai the LORD'S messenger in the LORD'S message unto the people, saying, I am with you, saith the LORD. And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the LORD of hosts, their God, In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king. 

The Desire of any child of God is to approach life with the presence of the Lord. The Lord promised he would never leave us nor forsake us, but that has not stopped his people from leaving him when the situation appears convenient. In the moment, our selfish desires override our desire for the presence of the true and living God. 

Our motive in these instances is to have our sin and the Lord also. Living this way demonstrates the unstable manner of a double-minded man. When we set out in life to please our flesh, we do so at the expense of pleasing God. The two are diametrically opposed one to the other. We can either walk in light or darkness, in the Spirit or the flesh - but we cannot have it both ways. When we live in obedience to God’s word we find ourselves walking in light and truth, this is pleasing to God. The Lord’s response is: “I am with you.” But our disobedience serves as our rejection of God’s help, his presence, and we may even encourage him to set himself against us. We want to avoid this at all costs.
