Not by might, nor by power, but by My spirit, says the Lord of hosts – Zechariah 4:6
It is only through the Holy Spirit living within us, that we can truly become successful in life.
In our own strength, we are weak, we become weary, frustrated and tired.When we try to do things in our own strength we are constantly searching for strength, comfort and relaxation in other things that are not pleasing to God and a distraction, keeping us from His purpose for our lives. But when we allow the Holy Spirit to work through us and to lead us to the will of God, it gives us contentment and a deep joy in our life and for whatever we are to do.
Through the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit, we can do anything, that is approved by God.To experience true joy in life, we need to become empty vessels for God’s use and for His glory. But even becoming an empty vessel, requires the strength of God.
Letting go of all the things that defile our heart can be difficult without the help of the Holy Spirit. In our flesh, we enjoy the things that hold us back from experiencing the true joy and fulfilment through Jesus Christ.
How can you become an empty vessel for God?
- Ask God to reveal to you the deep fleshly desires that are defiling your heart and mind, clean your temple by repenting and letting go of hate, pride, jealousy, pornography, lust and even self-hatred the list is endless.
- After letting go of your deep fleshly desires, ask God to remove the hindrances in your life, that is keeping you from knowing Him wholeheartedly.
- Ask God to use you and to fill you with his Holy Spirit. To anoint you to be a vessel and an instrument in His hands, to honour and glorify his holy name.
Know that God will use you and I pray that you draw near to God by reading His word. It is primarily through reading His word, when you truly get to know Him and when He reveals to you His purposes for your life.
Be willing to trust the Holy Spirit and to die to yourself.Sacrifice your comfortable state of being and become an instrument of God’s purpose for your life by striving to have a mind like Christ and he will certainly reward you.
Matthew 10:39 Says – “Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.”
