Not by might, nor by power

Are you fighting a very strong battle? Do you think that everything ends here and that your forces do not give you more? Well the good news we have today for you is that we serve a God who is an expert giving great victories to his servants and we just have to rest in his hands, and wait for the right moment to emerge victorious in the middle of the crisis.

I have always said that studying the Bible is a very important part of the spiritual life of the believer, because through the study of the Scriptures we can strengthen our faith, reading those great victories that God gave to his people in moments that had all the to lose and in the same way happens with us, we go through a very deep crisis, we cry, we complain, we isolate ourselves from everyone and we even question God, but then we realize that everything happened and that it was just a moment to God closer to Him.

The Bible say:

5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.

6 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.

Zachariah 4:5-6

These verses should make our soul happy and understand where our victory comes from, and that is that our victory to get out of certain crises is not in our strength but in the sovereign power of God.

The people of Israel experienced this several times, seeing the mighty hand of God ridding them of their enemies. Do you think God would not do the same for you or me? God is still God and as he was a helper and protector of his people, he continues to be today. So, put your burden on God, hide under His wings and wait on Him.

    Not by might, nor by power
    ======================
    The power of God is manifested in his works we see especially in his creation. The heavens and earth declare the glory of God and his power; the firmament with its immensity shows he is mighty in a incomprehensible way. The Lord can overcome all the enemies of his people and can shake the heavens and the earth; not by might nor by power but by his Holy Spirit.

    This is what God’s Word declares:

    “Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
    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.”
    Zachariah 4:5-6

    If we believe in God and trust in Him, he can carry out anything he pleases. Nothing can resist Him; he is able to act in the soul of men and women, transform people and turn them into different beings, as he did with the apostles who followed Jesus: their lives were changed, and he could transform Saul of Tarsus from persecutor of his Church into his Saviour’s instrument, so that many people elsewhere became Christian.

    The Bible records all the wonders the apostle Paul did by His power and the action of his Holy Spirit.

    We can trust, then, that He can help us in all our adversities in this life: no matter how heavy or difficult the test is that we go through.

    If we believe, we can. Yes, the children of God may be sure that he is ready for and wants to help us in all our troubles, by the power of his Holy Spirit.

    Let’s not fear evil people or evil spirits that surround us in this World: because the Lord God is our defender, and he has ordained our lives to be happy people with him. Glory to God in any bad or good situation. Let us live by the grace of Jesus Christ. Amen.
