SCRIPTURE: 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. Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: …. Zechariah 4:6-7
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Where the Spirit of God is found, smallness has no future
In our previous study, we saw that the Holy Spirit is One who executes the decisions of Divinity.
Today, we shall see important facts about the Power of the Holy Spirit.
1. What human might and power cannot handle can be handled by the Spirit of God (Zechariah 4:6).
2. No mountain is great enough to stand before the Spirit of the Lord (Zechariah 4:7).
3. Every mountain is level-able into a plain ground by the Spirit of the Lord. By the Spirit of God, mountains become plain ground (Zechariah 4:7).
4. The Spirit of the Lord is the secret of grace and ease (Zechariah 4:7). Carriers of the Spirit of God are carriers of Grace. It is easy where the Spirit is in charge.
5. The Spirit of the Lord is the secret of starting and finishing (Zechariah 4:9).
6. The Spirit of the Lord turns the days of small things into days of great things (Zechariah 4:10). Where the Spirit of God is found, smallness has no future.
7. The Spirit of the Lord is the tonic for joy and celebration. The Spirit of the Lord makes celebration mandatory (Zechariah 4:10).
Now, what is the secret of experiencing the operation of the Spirit?
It is the surrender of human might and power. Whenever we come to the end of ourselves, we are at the beginning with God
Beloved, if you want to experience the operation of the Spirit in your life, then surrender your educational qualifications, skills, talents and anything you can boast about to God.
Remember this: Where the Spirit of God is found, smallness has no future.
1. Engage the Spirit in any battle or confrontation of your life.
2. Pray abundantly in the Holy Ghost.
3. Surrender whatever you can boast about to God and let the Holy Spirit take the lead in everything you do.
PRAYER: Lord, I surrender to You anything that can be my ground for boasting. Have Your way in my life, family, career and destiny, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
