Day 19

hen he responded to me by saying, ‘This is the word of Adonai to Zerubbabel saying: “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Ruach!” says Adonai-Tzva’ot. “What are you, great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain. He will bring out the capstone with shouts of “Grace, grace” to it.’” - Zechariah 4:6-7

Heart Thoughts

Zerubbabel faced a mountain of a project. To rebuild the Jerusalem Temple was a mountain sized task. It was not only challenging financially but Israel’s enemies were opposing every step. But Adonai Tzva’ot does not talk about the difficulty of the task, He didn’t talk about how impossible it was, how it was never going to work out. He encouraged Zerubbabel to say, “Mountain, you’re nothing but a molehill.” He was prophesying his future. The mountain looked big. But he declared it would be made into a plain. Flattened out like a piece of Matza.

Here’s the point: Don’t talk about the difficulty of the task or project; speak with confidence in Adonai Tzva’ot to that task or project. Look at that mountain of a problem and tell it, “You can’t defeat me. I am more than a conqueror.” Look to Whatever mountains you face in life, no matter how challenging or difficult they look, don’t cower in fear be confident in the fear of the Lord. Declare your victory. Speak in faith that breakthroughs are coming. Boldly declare freedom is here, freedom is now and so is the victory.

Bracha

May Adonai Tzva’ot fill you with His Ruach today. May you see your mountains crumble before you as rely on His Ruach and not your might, power or influence. May Adonai Tzva’ot give you confidence to declare in faith that your mountains will become a plain.
