Is

“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.”
Zechariah 4:6b NASB

“But by My Spirit”

“Woe to the rebellious children,” declares the Lord, “Who execute a plan, but not Mine, And make an alliance, but not of My Spirit, In order to add sin to sin;”
Isaiah 30:1 NASB

“but not of My Spirit,”

“Thus says the Lord, “Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind And makes flesh his strength, And whose heart turns away from the Lord.”
Jeremiah 17:5 NASB

We make plans. We put our trust in alliances that are not of God. We trust in our own intellect, our own weak strengths. But did not God give us His Spirit to teach, guide, protect, strengthen by His power and might? Our hearts are turned away when we trust in anything or anyone other than the Lord Himself.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord And whose trust is the Lord.”
Jeremiah 17:7 NASB

Not only trusting IN Him but whose trust IS Him.

Is: be: continuous action

🌹 Is your life demonstrating that God IS your trust?

Apple of His Eye

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness,
Psalms 33:18 NASB

Wow! To think that God’s eye is upon me is enough for me to fear, be in reverential awe of, Him. Who am I that the Holy God of the universe would have His eye on me?! It is enough to draw me close to and hope for His lovingkindness.

When we draw close, seek Him, stand before Him in reverential awe we are right in the midst of His love, kindness, protection and guidance.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Psalms 32:8 NASB

Do you realize how precious you are to God? He will fight for you. He will protect you. He will teach you. He will guide you. Guide your EVERY step. Will you let Him?

For thus says the Lord of hosts, “After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye.
Zechariah 2:8 NASB

🌹Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings.
Psalms 17:8 NASB

Continually Seeking Him,
