Zechariah 4:10 (NIV)
1. Don’t despise the day of small things. God is working out something good and amazing for you in the quiet, ordinary, slower days. Those seven eyes are the eyes that range to and fro throughout the earth, looking for hearts that are fully devoted to the Lord, looking to do His will, even in the small and seemingly unimportant days. All the days and moments are important to God!
“Who dares despise the day of small things, since the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth will rejoice when they see the chosen plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel?”
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.”
2. “You are the apple of my eye and I love you,” says God, The Almighty One. Whoever messes with you, has to answer to me! In God, you are a treasured possession–highly valued and cherished. Do you know this? Do you believe it? It is true! Once we know how much we are loved and cared for by Jesus and have a personal relationship with Him, then we can go and be His ambassadors, spreading His Good News and love.
Zechariah 4:6 (NIV)
3. “Not by might, nor power, but by my Spirit,” says the Lord Almighty.
I guess, I need to get out-of-the-way and Let God be God! I am going to cooperate with what He (Holy Spirit) asks me to do and then, I’m going to let Him make it happen. Do I have to do my part?
Absolutely. But, I can relax right in this moment, ask for His help, guidance and direction. Next, I actually do my part! Then, I let go of the outcome, leaving it up to God to bless my efforts, give me
favor, without me looking for accolades outside of myself. Blessedness occurs when God gives me a divine hug and a kiss with a willingness to give Him all the praise, honor and glory. Amen to that.
