Greetings in Jesus' Name.
Haggai 1:5 "Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways."
We know that these are serious words that the Lord was using through the prophet to His people. These words brought about a great stirring and work for God.
Haggai 1:14 "And the Lord stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel...and they came and did work in the house of the Lord of hosts, their God."
After this great encounter with the Word of the Lord, God wants His people to consider something else.
Haggai 2:18, 19 "Consider now from this day and upward...from this day will I bless you."
Several months ago, God used the book of Haggai to bring about a spiritual stirring in my heart and soul. After serving the Lord for 30 years, I have an inward witness of entering into a new season of ministry. My wife, Terri, and I have a desire to see souls saved and God's people working together to build the Kingdom of God. I believe God wants to bless His people forward!

Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
