The Spirit’s Work
“Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord Almighty.” Zechariah 4:6 (NIV)
The Christian life is not about our works but about His working in our life through the indwelling Holy Spirit. We can never be good enough for Heaven by our own efforts, we can never be powerful enough to overcome sin, and we certainly have no might to stand against the demons of hell, except as we plant our faith in the blood of Jesus Christ trusting in His Spirit’s work.
It is presumptuous to claim our own authority as a reason for the enemy of souls to cease his efforts against us. We follow the Lord, we obey the Lord, and we trust in the Lord to bring about a change or a circumstance to His glory.
Let’s pray today that we may have faith in the Holy Spirit’s work as we live the Christian life.
