“But from this day I will bless you” (Haggai 2:19). 

Looking forward, the outlook is much brighter than the past for the children of the Most High God. Even though many of the things promised have not yet come to pass, God is still true to every one of them. The seed is still in the barn. The seed that is to be planted must be scattered before the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, or the olive tree is able to yield its fruit. The laborers must sow in the time of sowing before the reapers can come and reap the harvest. There is a future ahead of us that only God is able to bring to pass. Yet, each of us must diligently work in the season that is to be rightly occupied by those who are fully aware of times and seasons. While we may be waiting on God, God is also waiting on us!
