“Then he said to me, “This is what the Lord says to Zerubbabel: It is not by face nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.”
Where have you felt the power of God in your life? Has it been through the healing of an illness? Deliverance from an obstacle you were facing? We will never see the power of God in our lives until we allow Him to do what only He can do in, and through us. The Bible is filled with miracles, some of which are sometimes difficult to comprehend. These miracles can become a reality in our own life if we put our trust in God and believe He is who He says he is, and that he will do what He promises.
God gives his Spirit to his children. He created us to live our lives to bring glory to Him. I think sometimes we get so caught up and overwhelmed with life, and worldly things, that we create excuses and let negative seep in and take over. We have excuses why we can’t do things instead of trusting that the Lord will use us to be successful.
You can do nothing apart from God. He has the power. He will go before you and prepare the way, and he will walk alongside you and help you along the way. You just have to trust Him. When you set out to do His work in your own strength, it’s difficult because He’s not with you, but when you set out to do His work with His power, he will help you accomplish great things.
God has given us all His Spirit. It’s within each and every one of us, its up to us whether we use it or not. What are you going to choose to do?
