Power Verse # 15- Zechariah 4:6b





"Not by might nor by power but by My Spirit, says the Lord Almighty."



All the exploits of the great men in the Bible were not accomplished through their own strength nor wisdom but by the power of the Holy Spirit. It was the Holy Spirit that enabled Abraham and Sarah to have a child at their old ages and despite the fact that Sarah was barren. It was the Holy Spirit who enabled Moses to perform all the miracles, signs and wonders before Pharaoh and the Egyptians. It was the Holy Spirit that gave Gideon and Samson the courage and strength to overcome all their enemies. It was the Holy Spirit who guided the young David to kill the proud Goliath and who gave Solomon his unmatched wisdom. It was the Holy Spirit who inspired the prophets to prophesy about the Messiah- Jesus Christ. If we are Spirit filled, we will be successful in all we do so long as we commit them to the Lord. It will not be our own strength nor our own inherent intelligence that will see us through all adversities we will face but the Holy Spirit who indwells in our heart . We must always have an intimate relationship with God through constant prayers and by regular reading the word of God in the Bible and by walking in His ways. Then all the things that we will do will surely succeed as long as we commit them to the Lord.

It is true Sir Mel. It is the Holy Spirit in our hearts that are giving us strength.

Sabi nga e huwag kang gagawa ng kasalanan dahil iniisip mong mabait ang Diyos at papatawarin ka. Nagkakasala ka sa Holy Spirit sa ganitong kaisipan at ang pagkakasala daw sa Holy Spirit e walang kapatawaran. Ayon yan sa bible study namin noong highschool.

Have a great weekend.

Hi Rossel,
The unpardonable sin is ascribing to the Holy Spirit the work of the devil like what the Pharisees were relating to Jesus Christ when they ascribed the power of Jesus Christ to heal, to Beelzebul, the pince of evil. Blasphemy to the Holy Spirit is the unpardonable sin. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Thanks for your visit and for your prayers. I do appreciate them. God bless you all always.
