By My Spirit

His Strength, Our Weakness

His Strength, Our Weakness

Zechariah 4:6So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.

Leaning on Our Might

When facing opposition, our tendency is to trust in human strength, talents, or vigor to achieve God’s work.

But this verse reminds us that lasting fruit comes through a different source.

Empty Without His Spirit

Apart from the energizing power of the Holy Spirit, our efforts are futile.

We may coerce temporary change in others but cannot impart lasting heart transformation.

Power in Weakness

This is freeing! Our humble weakness creates space for the Spirit’s surpassing power.

As we rely fully on Him, results exceed human capacity. We simply yield.

An Unstoppable Force

The Spirit is an unstoppable force that cannot be thwarted.

When He moves in response to dependent prayer, not even stone walls can withstand His might.

Lord, Fill Me Afresh with Your Spirit

Lord, forgive me for operating out of human strength instead of relying on the Spirit’s power. I choose to embrace weakness that Your strength may be displayed. Fill me daily with Your energizing, transformative Spirit.
