The Jewish people are sad after building the Second Temple because it is not as grand as the First Temple (Solomon’s Temple). But God encourages His People in Haggai 2.4-5: “Be strong, all you people of the land,” declares the Lord, “and work. For I am with you…my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.”
Our visions for our lives (families, marriages, careers, ministries, etc.) may not have turned out how we had planned, but Jesus is found in our brokenness and humility. We draw closer to Him in our disappointments, knowing that our intimacy with God is a priceless treasure.
