Not By Might

Zechariah 4:6 AMP
6 Then he said to me, This [addition of the bowl to the candlestick, causing it to yield a ceaseless supply of oil from the olive trees] is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit [of Whom the oil is a symbol], says the Lord of hosts.

Philippians 4:13 AMP
13 I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].

Recently as I was meditating and praying the above scriptures, the Lord gave me an encouraging song. It is a reminder that the Lord is our strength and that there is no other Rock like Jesus Christ our Lord!

Not By Might

Not by power
Not by might
But by Your Spirit Lord
I can do all things through the strength of Christ
I can do all things through the strength of Christ
All praise be to my Rock!

No other Rock
I know not one
You alone Lord
Are truly great!

You are the first
You are the last
Lord Almighty You
Are truly great!

I can do all things through the strength of Christ
I can do all things through the strength of Christ
All praise be to my Rock!

Isaiah 44:6-8 AMP
6 Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: I am the First and I am the Last; besides Me there is no God.
7 Who is like Me? Let him [stand and] proclaim it, declare it, and set [his proofs] in order before Me, since I made and established the people of antiquity. [Who has announced from of old] the things that are coming? Then let them declare yet future things.
8 Fear not, nor be afraid [in the coming violent upheavals]; have I not told it to you from of old and declared it? And you are My witnesses! Is there a God besides Me? There is no [other] Rock; I know not any.
