“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” (Zechariah 4:6).
How many times must we be reminded that “the war against sin” will not be won by man’s strength–in numbers or physical prowess. This war–against self, others, and God–will only be won when The Spirit of The Lord reigns in the heart of every person.
For every person who has allowed Holy Spirit control over their life, others must be informed and invited to allow Him into their hearts. As we grow in numbers–promoting the Gospel and others submit to the power of Holy Spirit, we are all empowered to get the job done and the more we stand firm, rooted and grounded in our faith in God, the more we are able to stand against the enemy who hates everything God loves. The battle is not ours–it is The Lord’s–we are His instruments of praise and worship, and tellers of the Truth and models of how we should live so everyone will know–God’s truth about faith and sin.
The Spiritual Army of The Lord, must rise and shine–beckoning others into the light of love so we may all live in peace and harmony. This is how this war will be won-not by any physical strength–but by the power of Almighty God dwelling in and amongst us–empowering us to move forward without fear or trepidation of what the enemy does–we keep moving forward–promoting the love of Jesus and salvation for all!
We must believe Samuel, especially today, “He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail” (I Samuel 2:9).
Come Holy Spirit–Reign in our hearts and empower us to Rise and Move out into the world of darkness, bringing into it the Light and Truth, not by our words, but by our living The Word!
