By God's Spirit Alone

Zerubbabel (along with others), came back from Babylon, their land of captivity, to rebuild the temple of God. They faced difficulties, challenges and persecution on every hand as they attempted this great building project. You, too, are involved in a great building program. Maybe, like Zerubbabel and his team, you find you cannot do it in your own strength.

The prophet came with a word from God to encourage him, “This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit saith the Lord of hosts.” (Zechariah 4:6). I cry out these words nearly every day of my life. I cannot face all my challenges in my own wisdom. I cannot make my family members walk in God’s ways. I cannot accomplish the task with my limited capacity. It is only by the moving and working of the Holy Spirit in my life, and in their lives. I am totally reliant upon the power of the Holy Spirit.

Praise God for His power which works in us mightily (Ephesians 3:20; Philippians 2:13; Colossians 1:29) and Hebrews 13:21). The prophet continued, “Who art thou, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain.” (Zechariah 4:7). Do you have mountains in the way of your building a strong marriage and family? Through the power of the Holy Spirit the mountains will become a plain! Claim this promise and the Word of the Lord to you.

Love from Nancy
