Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

“This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.” – Zech 4:6

Might and power are good; but Spirit is better! The strength you need to accomplish your dreams is only available from God’s Holy Spirit. If you try to succeed alone, you will fail; but with God, all things are possible!

Would you believe that God wants to see you accomplish your dreams even more than you do? His desire is to partner with you, so that everything you have ever hoped for will come to pass. You have a choice: you can struggle and strive to do everything on your own, knowing your efforts will be in vain; or, you can rely on God’s Holy Spirit to do the miraculous through you!

So, what’s it going to be?


Father, help me to rest in the finished work of the Cross. Help me to rely on Your Holy Spirit. I want to lean on Your strength, and never my own, in Jesus’ name!
