“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse,

that there may be food in my house. 

Test me in this” says the Lord Almighty,

“and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven

and pour out so much blessing

that you will not have room enough for it.” 

Malachi 3:10

I can’t help but wonder what happened in Bozeman that this facility is defunct.  Why did it stop processing grain?  How did it come to be abandoned?  What lessons can be learned from what happened here?  Did someone conclude it just wasn’t worth maintaining?

These buildings seem to stand as a monument to a time long ago.  The property, now tied up in bankruptcy/foreclosure litigation, is designated one of the most  endangered historic sites of Montana.

Makes me wonder. 

How are my storehouses?  Is my heart tucked full of the food it needs – the nourishment of God’s word? 

Or does it have broken windows and graffiti scars where the word should be? 

I don’t want a heart that is a historical site – I want one that lives and breathes the Holy Spirit with new life and a full harvest evident with each beat.

One thought on “STORE HOUSES

  1. I hearted this. There have been times in my life where I have stood tall and empty and dry and unused like these warehouses. For whatever reason they aren’t useful. I know that I had to be broken before I could be used. God will only use a humble soul. And it’s better to be humble then to have to be humbled – I had to be humbled – the storehouses are humble. I thank you for this, I truly enjoyed it – makes me want to know what’s going to happen to them as well. God bless you and keep you and each and every one of yours – and thank you.
