  So he answered me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by strength or by might, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of Hosts.”—Zechariah 4:6

 

God’s word came to His people at a critical time. They were a despondent, disillusioned people who faced a daunting task. They had been exiled in Babylon for seventy years. During this time they had witnessed the strength of the most dominant military power in their world. They had watched the Babylonian army marching off to conquer other nations. They had seen the wealth and splendor of the Babylonian king. When Babylon was in turn conquered by the Persians, the Israelites saw an even greater superpower emerging on the world stage. They lost heart when they compared their own weakness and captivity with the enormous strength and wealth of the superpowers of their day.

As the Israelites returned to Jerusalem after seventy years in captivity, they found their city in ruins. Their magnificent temple had been destroyed. The city walls had been torn down. They had no resources to rebuild their splendid city. As these former refugees looked at the mammoth task before them, they realized their poverty and weakness, and they became greatly dismayed. Then came God’s word! He promised that they would, indeed, rebuild their city. But, He told them, the rebuilding would not be accomplished by their own power and resources but by His Spirit. As long as they had God’s Spirit, they had everything they needed.

There will be times when obeying God will lead you to impossible situations. If you look at your own skills, knowledge, and resources, you will become discouraged. However, when you became a Christian, God placed His Spirit within you. You now have the resources of heaven at your disposal. The success of your endeavors will not depend on the way you use your own resources but on how you obey the Spirit of God.

Obedient to God will accompany much for us than all other things put together. God commanded Abraham to live his Father’s house and Abraham obeyed Him, in return God made a promised  to Abraham that all his desecendance became beneficial to Abrahamic blessing up to our own generation.

I use to be bitter about the things I lost through obedience to the word of God even of recent but when God opened my eyes to His Word which He said that everything I lost or give up just because of Him, He will replenish, He will reward my obedience. Secondly when I readabout God’s Word to Abraham, my hope was rekindled because I know that He that promise will not lie neither will He repent. He did not call the children of Jacob to serve Him in vain, to Him alone be all the glory, honour, adoration to the highest, Alleluia amen !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Come and see the wonders of the Lord confirming His Word to Zerubbabel. Lydia’s heart was opened by Him , she received the Word of God and was counted among the faithful, let get more below:

Whose heart the Lord opened.” Acts 16:14

 

In Lydia’s conversion there are many points of interest. It was brought about by providential circumstances. She was a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, but just at the right time for hearing Paul we find her at Philippi; providence, which is the handmaid of grace, led her to the right spot.

Again, grace was preparing her soul for the blessing—grace preparing for grace. She did not know the Saviour, but as a Jewess, she knew many truths which were excellent stepping-stones to a knowledge of Jesus. Her conversion took place in the use of the means. On the Sabbath she went when prayer was wont to be made, and there prayer was heard.

Never neglect the means of grace; God may bless us when we are not in His house, but we have the greater reason to hope that He will when we are in communion with His saints. Observe the words, “Whose heart the Lord opened.” She did not open her own heart. Her prayers did not do it; Paul did not do it. The Lord Himself must open the heart, to receive the things which make for our peace.

He alone can put the key into the hole of the door and open it, and get admittance for Himself. He is the heart’s master as He is the heart’s maker. The first outward evidence of the opened heart was obedience. As soon as Lydia had believed in Jesus, she was baptized. It is a sweet sign of a humble and broken heart, when the child of God is willing to obey a command which is not essential to his salvation, which is not forced upon him by a selfish fear of condemnation, but is a simple act of obedience and of communion with his Master.

The next evidence was love, manifesting itself in acts of grateful kindness to the apostles. Love to the saints has ever been a mark of the true convert. Those who do nothing for Christ or His church, give but sorry evidence of an “opened” heart. Lord, evermore give me an opened heart.

And a heart that will obey you not counting the cost, help us to go where You are leading us willing in Jesus Name. having done all we know how to do may Your Spirit help us through in Jesus Name.

Beloved on this note we declare this week open, we will go by the Spirit of the Lord and return with testimonies in Jesus Name. help us O Lord we pray Thee, Amen!!!!!!!!!!1

Remain blessed in the Lord.
