You’ve probably experienced a season of God-ordained struggle, a time when there was a chill in the corner office, a dent in the savings account, a downturn. Often these days exist for a purpose: to turn our hearts back to God.
This is what the Israelites of Haggai’s day needed. Charged by God to rebuild the temple, they had abandoned the task, distracted by worldly things. The prophet Haggai was sent to remind them of their work and to convey a promise: “‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the Lord Almighty” (Haggai 2:9).
In your case, the glory of the latter career, the latter years will be greater than the former. Turn your heart back to him. In God’s plan, tomorrow always has the potential to outshine today.
