We live in a world that continually encourages us to live in our own power and strength.
Pray that every follower of Jesus will recognize that we can only live the way that God wants us to, when we are dependent on his power and strength, as we lean on the Spirit.
For it is we who are the circumcision, we who serve God by his Spirit, who boast in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh—though I myself have reasons for such confidence. Philippians 3:3-4
This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty. Zechariah 4:6
