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 KJV Bible
Zerubabel was part of the first group of Jews to travel from Babylonian captivity back to Jerusalem during the first year of Cyrus, King of Persia. Zerubbabel went on to be the Perisan governor of Judah and to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem. Through the prophet Zechariah, who was instructed by an angel, God told Zerubbabel to remember: All would be acomplished not in Zerubbabel's power, but by the Spirit of God.
So often, we make excuses for why we think God cannot use us. We may blame our health, our background, or our education. And we just accept that we will never make a significant impact.
But God reminds us that it is not by our might or by our power that He works, but it is by His Spirit. Do you have a problem? Call on the Lord. No problem is too big or too small for Him.
Dear Father, I thank You for the blessings you have given me. I ask that Your Spirit would take my imperfections and use them to do Your perfect work.
