    Verse 13~Jehovah God reassured the people that he was there for them. He wanted to instill confidence in them so that they could carry out the work.

    "This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD'S house should be built... Consider your ways." NOW in this present time, while we're here; NOW with deceitful and treacherous enemies working against us; NOW is the time to be holy and work and build the House of God. We do not wait till heaven to become holy! If we are not fit for His presence when He comes, we will only have shame.

    Verse 5- Jehovah God is so loving and patient in how he wants us to really think about what we are doing. Sometimes we can forget our priorities and we should be grateful for his patience and reminders.

    Verse 6 shows that we need Jehovah God’s blessing in our lives. We can only enjoy any material things we have because God allows us to exist and find pleasure in different things. Our gratitude and knowledge of this fact should move us to put spiritual interests first.

    This chapter reminds me of Matt 6:31 'Seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all things shall be added to you'. When we put the things of God first, then we shall prosper. I believe that when we neglect to worship God and give of our tithes and offerings we are never satisfied. No matter what we try to achieve it will come to naught without putting God first in our lives.

    V. 11, goes with 2 Chr. 7:13, and MANY others. The eastern, southern states of USA are in a drought, as the western states. Droughts are common to the west; until some wks. ago I had NEVER heard of droughts in the eastern, southern states. Jesus is talking.
