Zechariah 4 verse 6: “’Not by strength or by might, but by My Spirit’, says the Lord of Hosts”.
When life is grey, God adds the color.
As in Zechariah’s day, the rebuilding of the temple is such a big task for the returning exiles, but with God in all things, the day of the small things is not to be despised. Our God’s Spirit is greater then human ingenuity. Our weakness are always Our Lord and Our Friend’s opportunities.
Once we have received God’s Grace and Mercy through Salvation, it becomes our responsibility to work with Him, to help others find the same wonderful Salvation. The promise is one day evil will be banished.
Sometimes when we expect things, the expected things turn out differently from what is expected. There are many promises in the Bible, but we can never be certain how any will be fulfilled. Jesus was not what the prophets or Zechariah expected. But God is in the unexpected business.
The prophets who predicted the coming Messiah, and His Kingdom didn’t know what they were really expecting. Faith looks for God to be at work, as He has promised to be, but God never lets on the wheres and the whens and hows, but His promises are true, and it will always be: “’Not by might not by power, but by My Spirit’, says The Lord”.
Most the situations in our life, are learning to let go and let God do it His way.
