Haggai was a man who lived during great distress in Israel. The nation had been overrun and most of the Israelites were living in a foreign land. As the people slowly trickled back into Israel, they rebuilt their homes but not the house of the Lord. God challenged his people, instructing them to focus on building his house. This is because God was getting ready to do something special: he was going to “shake all the nations, so that the treasures of all nations shall come in.” You see, God was preparing to build his kingdom on the righteousness of Jesus Christ, hunting for treasure throughout the nations. The same message applies to us: Make God Your First Priority and Start Expecting the Unexpected!
