‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty. Zech 4:6
There are many lessons that I have felt the Lord has taught me over the years and the one in this little verse is perhaps one of the most meaningful. There are just some things that cannot be done except by the power of the Spirit of God. There are some opportunities that won’t come, some relationships that won’t survive and some incredible dreams that will never come to fruition without the Spirit of God breathing upon them.
Too often I think that if I can just learn enough, if I can simply train enough I can be everything that is necessary to succeed in every situation. When I start to think that way I realize that I am becoming more selfish and inward focused. I need to be self-less instead. My power and might are not as important as His Spirit.
Join me today and take a moment to surrender your plans, your relationships and your dreams to the Lord. Then say this powerful declaration out loud and watch the heavens open up as the Spirit of God comes upon you!
