Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 4:6
When the troubles and trials of life seem insurmountable, what are we inclined to do? Many of us default to "fix it" mode or "charge into battle" mode. Have you ever considered what it says about our view of God when our inclination is to take control and exert our own might and power. This doesn't mean we shouldn't act when called to do so. It does mean we need to check our hearts to make sure we are surrendered to the Spirit in all that we do.
Lord, help me remember that you have a sovereign plan and, regardless of the apparent obstacles, you will bring it to pass....not by might, nor by power, but by your Spirit! Amen!
