"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 sayeth the Lord of hosts." Zechariah 4:6
OUR CHALLENGE TODAY!
What's the deal with Zerubbabel? Zerubbabel was building a temple, he was the Governor of a small province within the large Persian Empire, but God reassured Zerubbabel that despite his size and lack of resources, the job was going to get done! We need this sometimes in our life, times when we seem to be overwhelmed, times when we don't believe that we can do one more thing, and times when we just feel like giving up! We need to know that we are weak, and we are small, and we can't do it in our own strength! God must be allowed to do it! We need to understand, Psalm 127:1 that says, Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it, except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain." Let go and let God, he will do it by his spirit!
“For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.” Hebrews 11:10 Let God build your life today!
“Train up a child in the way that he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6 Help God build a child’s life today!
THIS DAY IN DEVOTION:
Jesus is the Master Builder!
