13 Then Haggai, the Lord’s messenger, gave this message of the Lord to the people: “I am with you,” declares the Lord. 14 So the Lord stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of the whole remnant of the people. They came and began to work on the house of the Lord Almighty, their God. Haggai 1:13-14 NIV

 Who of you is left who saw this house in it’s former glory? How does it look to you know? Does it not seem to you like nothing? Haggai 2:3 NIV

 2 main Causes of Discouragement:

  • Comparisons
  • Lack of Progress


But now be strong, Zerubbabel,’ declares the Lord. ‘Be strong, Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you  people of the land, declares the Lord, ‘and work. For I am with you,’ declares the Lord Almighty.  Haggai 2:4 NIV

 So what do we do when we are discouraged?

God says to:

  • Be strong
  • Do the work


Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9 NIV
