December 21, Reading 2 – Zechariah 4

Reading

Audio, Visual

SAA Notes

You will find this vision in Revelation 11 as well. It is a vision of the heavenly Tabernacle. The King and Priest (those anointed) bring the outpouring of the Holy Spirit through their work. Does this tell us anything about Jesus and His work?

SJA Notes

* Holy God, thank You for Your word today.

“Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.”

What wonderful words these are to us today!

This is the message of Israel at the Red Sea, of Gideon, of David and Goliath, of the Lord speaking to Elijah in a low whisper.

God works in such a different way, on such a different level, than any other entity.

He works BY HIS SPIRIT!

Nobody else, no other nation or government, no king or president can do this!

We can be encouraged in the still and quiet voice of the Lord, take joy in the day of small things. That though we may not be great and mighty – We are of the Lord, and His Spirit works through us!

The world cannot offer anything like this.

Hallelujah, what a God we have!

* Dear Lord,

Thank You that You work through Your Spirit.

Thank You that God the Son sent God the Spirit to us, to be our companion in life.

Thank You that Your Spirit is at work in and through us as we walk this road.

Amen.
