Zechariah 4:6 (LITV) Then he answered and spoke to me, saying, This *is* the word of Jehovah to Zerubbabel, saying, not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says Jehovah of hosts.
The opening phrases of the Bible Have words like “beginning”, “created”, “void”, “formless”. It is at the center of all these that the first personality of the Bible is introduced. Nothing happened until this personality appeared on the scene (hovering over the deep).
It is important to carefully follow on to see how God goes about his business, given that we have received the authority to become the sons of God. The consequence of becoming an offspring of the Father is that we carry His spots and by implication do the works he does. (See Deut. 32:5, Matt. 17:15-17). It is to this end that even creation holds up an expectation (for the manifestation of the sons of God).
In every instance in the scriptures, (both in the old and new testament) that God acted, it was by the Holy Spirit. In some places of the old testament, the Spirit was likened to the wind (See Genesis 8:1, Numbers 11:31 Jeremiah 17:18, Ezekiel 37:29) and in the new testament, Jesus likened a man who is born of the Spirit to wind.
Every man that made a great impact in God, did through the Holy Spirit. In the old covenant, it came upon men (Visitations). All through the old testament, you hear statements like THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD CAME UPON. (See Judges 3:10, Ezekiel 11:5, 1 Samuel 16:13-14). Under the new covenant, our relationship with the Spirit is that of habitation; the Holy Ghost who now dwells in us is the spirit of divine works.
Go into today knowing that the Holy Spirit who is in continuous fellowship and participation with the Father and the Son, is in you. He is waiting in the garden of your heart for intimacy. It is by Him that all works are done.
Prayer: LORD, awaken my heart to an unbroken consciousness of your presence.
