Sparking the Enthusiasm

October 8th, 2016 · No Comments

Haggai 1:14-15 (New Living Translation)

14 So the Lord sparked the enthusiasm of Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the enthusiasm of Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the enthusiasm of the whole remnant of God’s people. They began to work on the house of their God, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, 15 on September 21 of the second year of King Darius’s reign.

What a precious gift from God:

God sparked their enthusiasm.

There have been several times in my life when someone did this for me. They said something that sparked my enthusiasm. My outlook on the world changed in a second.

I believe now that on these occasions, God used those people. It was God who sparked my enthusiasm. I struggle to find a gift from God as precious and life-changing as that.
