FUNCTION BY THE ABILITY OF THE SPIRIT;

“Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts”(Zechariah 4:6).

In 1 Samuel 2:9 the Bible says “…for by strength shall no man prevail.” That means no one makes it in life by sheer muscles or human ability. You can’t function by your own human strength, wisdom and intelligence and expect to achieve much. You can only make real impact and achieve incontrovertible success when you function by the ability of the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:5 (AMP): “Not that we are fit (qualified and sufficient in ability) of ourselves to form personal judgments {or} to claim {or} count anything as coming from us, but our power {and} ability {and} sufficiency are from God.” When you function by the ability of the Spirit you’ll never be at your wit’s end. You’ll never run out of power or the divine might to accomplish whatever task you have ahead of you.

This was the secret to the success recorded by the Apostles in the Early Church as they carried out God’s Word.

They functioned by the power of the Spirit. The Apostle Paul, for one, made copious reference to the ability of God’s Spirit in Him. In Colossians 1:29 he said, “Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.” He knew there was something energizing him from within, it was the power of the Spirit. No wonder He said “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13).

Recognize the working of the Spirit in you. That consciousness will produce a divine force that’ll propel you to accomplish things supernaturally.
