Then he 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. (Zechariah 4:6, ESV)
There is no doubt that the United States has the greatest military on the face of the earth. There is no enemy that can stand against us. But that is not enough to solve the world’s problems. We, as a nation and as individuals, try to power our way out of difficulties. The reality is, if we want to accomplish something truly great – it will be through the Spirit of God and not by our own methods and force.
Prayer: Lord, you are my real Commander and Chief.
