Meditate with Power!
Zechariah 4:6 “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts.
Meditate with Power! In the history of the Bible the greatest acts of God have been activated by the simple faith of men and women that trusted in God’s power. So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts.7 ‘Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone With shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’” Zechariah 4:6-7
There have been times when the simplest act of faith was followed by God’s Holy Spirit moving in the heart of a powerful person because of the courage of one person. As in the case of Esther, when the nation of Israel was facing annihilation by evil people who tricked the king into signing a decree that would destroy entire nation. If it pleases the king, let a decree be written that they be destroyed, and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver into the hands of those who do the work, to bring it into the king’s treasuries.” 10 So the king took his signet ring from his hand and gave it to Haman, the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the enemy of the Jews. 11 And the king said to Haman, “The money and the people are given to you, to do with them as seems good to you.” Esther 3:9-11 The time and date was set for the destruction of the nation unless someone spoke. That someone was Queen Esther. And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:13-14
Then the words that would be remembered by every brave person who ever reads this story of how to activate God’s Holy Spirit in your life. Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai: Esther 4:15-16 What simple act of fact is God leading you to do today? Follow the words of Esther, who believed God would protect her when she stepped forward in faith. Then step out in faith today and watch what God will do through the power of the Holy Spirit living within you. Watch God work today! “Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!”
