Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

“‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts” (Zech 4:6). Zerubbabel, the governor of Judah, had started rebuilding the temple at Jerusalem. God needed Zerubbabel to know that he would finish the work he had started. He would not finish his undertaking, however, by his own might and strength; but only by relying on God’s Holy Spirit to work through him with supernatural power.

God has called all of us to ‘rebuild His temple’ by expanding His kingdom here on earth. We will only finish God’s work when we learn to rely on His Holy Spirit. Through our own might and power, we can do nothing; but God, working through us, can accomplish whatever pleases Him!

Prayer:

Father, I pray that You would remind me every single day to rely on Your Holy Spirit. I will achieve victory in this life, on Your behalf, in the form of dramatic Kingdom expansion. I will only do it when I learn to rely on Your Holy Spirit!
