When anything good happens in the world, let’s remember that – while God may use us (and our talents and spiritual giftedness) to help bring about the blessing – it is only through the power of His Spirit that the good work is accomplished. This verse from Zechariah 4 is a good reminder of this truth.
In fact, I like to think of the verse in this way instead, as it helps me to remember to “stay in my own lane,” spiritually speaking:
It’s definitely not by MY might (such as it is), or by MY power (limited though it may be), but only through YOUR powerfulSpirit, Lord, that all of Your good plans are accomplished..
And this same Spirit dwells within those of us who choose to follow Jesus! Truly, this is a reason for great hope. ✝️
