Dear brothers and sisters,
Today I want to encourage you with the words from Zechariah 4:6 (NIV):
6 So He said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘not by might nor by power, but my spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.
God makes a clear distinction between power and mights and His Spirit. The reason He does this, because we power and might are things from ourselves, or which we can mistakenly see as from our own. However, as soon as we start trusting on our own works, than we can really be surprised. Because we need God in everything we do and the only way is through the Holy Spirit.
