GOD-TRACKING IS NOT BY POWER NOR MIGHT BUT BY THE HOLY SPIRIT

 Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through him who strengthens me

I could imagine Governor Zerubbabel sitting among the rubble of the ruins of Solomon’s temple on Mount Zion. He was one of those people who had returned from Babylon, who was perhaps born in captivity. “Adonai, I am a simple man with no knowledge of building a grand temple to your glory. I’m not a mighty warier like King David of old, or powerfully wealthy like King Solomon who built this temple. How am I to do this great task you’re asking of me? How will I restore your mighty temple?”

The Babylonians had conquered Judah in 587 B.C. The Jews had turned from God’s Law and were worshipping useless idols. Through his prophets, God warned his people that Jerusalem would fall, because of their rebellion. For 70 years they would remain in exile. After this time, God would restore his people and rebuild Jerusalem. When Persia overthrew Babylon, its king, Cyrus issued a decree that the Jews could return to their homeland. God inspired Ezra and Nehemiah to unite his people and restore Jerusalem and rebuild the temple. Zerubbabel was appointed governor under the king of Persia. Zerubbabel was a humble man facing the greatest task of his life. I believe Zerubbabel lacked the confidence and skills required to undertake such a great mission. He had neither the military might of David or the monitory power of Solomon, yet God had called him to rebuild Jerusalem and its temple.

Zerubbabel sat with his head in his hands in the blazing sun. Behind him he heard the voice of the prophet Zechariah, “Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts.”

Dear friend, God has a job for you to do. The Scripture tells us that he knows the plans he has for us. Perhaps you’re feeling a little like Governor Zerubbabel felt that day; not qualified or skilled like your predecessors to adequately do the job. God’s Word to you today is, it’s not by the financial power or physical, academic or natural might that you will successfully accomplish this task. It’s only by the anointing of the Holy Spirit of God upon you, that will qualify you to succeed. So, acknowledge the Lord in this mission, seek his power and might and believe that you can do all things through Christ who is your strength. And go for it!

God-tracking is not by power nor might but by the Holy Spirit

DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP & PRAY

 I can do this, through Christ who gives me strength

 “Holy God, thank you that you have a calling on my life. I surrender to your will and your plans for me. Help me to not rely on my own skills or abilities. Your Word is true. I accept your word to me today that I will succeed not by my abilities but only by the might and power of your Spirit in me. I acknowledge you in all my work and seek your anointing to fulfil my responsibilities. Help me Lord, to be successful in all I do; I put my faith in you. I can do this, through Christ who gives me strength. Amen.”
