When we rely on organization, we get what organization can do. When we rely upon education, we get what education can do. When we rely on eloquence, we get what eloquence can do. But when we rely on the Holy Spirit, we get what God can do.A. C. Dixon
We are learning the lesson of waiting on God, which isn’t easy for “doers,” but, nevertheless is essential for successful ministry. May we not run ahead of God, or lag behind Him. As we walk in pace with Him we see how the Holy Spirit links people, experiences and opportunities together with precise timing. This shows us that He leading us, and is weaving together pieces of the tapestry that we never could have conceived of nor orchestrated on our own.
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.Zephaniah 4:6
