“‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6 NASB).
Jesus invites us to hoist the sail. Rowboat Christianity exhausts and frustrates. Those who attempt it are left depleted and desperate at the attempt. Those who let the Spirit do the work, find fresh power. Life still has storms, but they are not left to face the fury on their own.
The work of salvation is done. Can I urge you, if you have not done so already, to believe on him whom God has sent? Trust Jesus to do the work that only he can do. Rely upon the Holy Spirit to quicken with you a new spirit, a new creation. Come to him in the light of a new day, in the power of a new you.
