Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 06/24/12

This week’s scripture is from Zechariah:

“‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’  Says the Lord of hosts.”  (Zechariah 4:6b)

The Lord has done great things, but try as we might, we can do little of the Lord’s work on our own, in and of ourselves. We can strive heartily and spend hundreds of hours and use a great deal of money and resources in our efforts creating plans and programs to advance the Kingdom of God. Yet it is only by the power of the Holy Spirit that the Lord’s work is accomplished. We cannot force the hand of God. Unless the Spirit moves, nothing significant, nothing lasting, will happen. Wait upon the Spirit and be prepared. If the Holy Spirit is at work then the work cannot fail, but without the Spirit we can bear little fruit.

May the Lord bless you with readiness at the move of His Holy Spirit.
