Not By Might…

I sat just listening to worship music this evening. Some days, some weeks you just need to encourage yourself in the Lord to press in and press on. I was looking through encouraging Scriptures to do just that when the Lord led me to Zechariah 4:6, “Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, 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.” I had been struggling this week trying to do everything by my might. I was taking on problems that weren’t mine to carry. I was overwhelmed by things out of my control. I was allowing the enemy to use people to trouble my mind. The result was heartburn and severe stomach pain so bad my meals have been limited to small portions of bland food for an entire week. I wasn’t going to conquer any of the situations before me. I needed to relinquish control to the one who could, it’s by His Spirit the Goliaths before me would be conquered. “…Not by might, not by power, but by my spirit, sainthood the Lord of hosts.” I think I should put that on a post-it, maybe a couple of them as reminders it’s not by MY might but by HIS Spirit so that I can give God praise for what HE is doing every time the “me” tries to do something out of pure might! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
