HERE IS A FREE BIBLE STUDY ON HAGGAI FOR YOUR YOUTH GROUP!
This free Bible study on Haggai studies Haggai’s prophecy for Israel to teach us how to rebuild our spiritual lives when it feels like we are in ruins.
HERE IS HOW THIS FREE BIBLE STUDY ON HAGGAI BREAKS DOWN:
BUILD BACK BETTER
After generations of exile, displaced Hebrews began moving back to their beloved Promised Land. The landscape looked nothing like the “land of milk and honey” their ancestors had found. It was more like a land of “mud and horror.” Their temple was a pile of rocks. Their city looked like a war zone. At first, they were excited to rebuild, but time made them grow complacent. The efforts just stopped. God sent the prophet Haggai to help them with their rebuilding efforts. Haggai had to help the Hebrews see a harsh reality. Their lack of discipline was on display in every facet of their lifestyle. Their crops died, their economy collapsed, and enemies were starting to take advantage of their vulnerability. Now, it was time for action, so what were they to do? Rebuild. But God wanted them to build back better.
The nation’s calling wasn’t easy. They still had to make bricks, lay tile, lift heavy beams, and move furniture up the stairs. Success was on the other side of their hard work, though. It’s worth acknowledging that their success didn’t look like you may expect. What did God say he would give them? Peace. He didn’t say prosperity. He didn’t say a pizza party. God granted them peace.
Be encouraged by the message of Haggai. God will help you build back better through the power of the Spirit and the peace that comes with His presence. Let God restore the ruins of your life. He will make something amazing rise from the ashes.
