Not By Might!

I am in LOVE with this verse today!

How many things do we fight and scrape for?!
How many times do we work ourselves into a frenzy trying
 to make things turn out the way we want them to?!
Do we strong-arm situations to our advantage?
Does it feel like an uphill battle?
Well, it probably should.

Many times we exhaust our might and our power
and are still no closer to a solution.

Do we ever stop to think that maybe it's not OUR fight?
It's not OUR mountain to move?

Sometimes we have to let go of things 
so that God can do HIS work.
HE doesn't need our muscles or our minds.
HE can certainly use them and many times HE does.
But maybe what HE wants is our surrender.

I know that I've messed up many situations just 
by trying to take care of them in my own power.

Facing something hard?
Something you need to overcome?
Tired of trying to figure it out or fix it?
Maybe HE wants us to sit this one out.

Let's try getting out of the way today and 
see what God wants to do with it.

Not by might, nor by power,
but by MY SPIRIT,
says the Lord Almighty.
Zechariah 4:6

  1. I actually know these words as a song. "Not by might. Not by power, but by spirit alone, shall we all live in peace."
