So he answered and 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 of hosts (Zech. 4:6).
Today, we will look at Zechariah 4:6. The Lord says to us: "Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit." Sometimes, we go through a lot of trials and hardship in our Christian life. Sometimes we see no deliverance either on the right or on the left. We tried to seek the help of man but man is limited and cannot really help us. The Bible says, "Give us help from trouble, for the help of man is useless" (Psalm 60:11). Indeed the help of man is useless and vain. Also, we tried to help ourselves and we found we cannot even deliver ourselves. So, what can we do in this case? The only thing to do is to look up to God for He alone is our help. The Psalmist says:
"I will lift up my eyes to the hills--
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth" (Psalm 121:1-2).
So, in all our affliction and distress, let us remember the Lord. Let us not fall into despair and despondency. But let us look up to our Heavenly Father who cares for us. God cares even for the small details of our lives. Jesus said, "But the very hairs of your head are all numbered" (Matt. 10:30). Let us go to God today and pour our hearts before Him.
Father, please be with us today and strengthen us. Help us to wait on You and to trust You in all circumstances. Use us to be light and salt in this world. Use us to be a great and bold witness for Christ. Help us to speak the truth in love. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus name. Amen.
"Trust in Him at all times, you people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us" (Psalm 62:8).
