Not by Might
Dec 13, 2007
By: Rick L. King
Not by might nor power
Itís only by My Spirit
Is stated in Zechariah 4 and six
Are there any that can hear it?
Our flesh is enmity against God
And can never please Him
Flesh is powerless
To rid mankind of sin
The Holy Spirit reproves
And convicts us of our sin
Then gives us power to change
That we may have fellowship, once again
To trust in self
Is just a devilish lie
As it makes us to be a god
And on the true God we donít rely
All we need to do is observe
And see the mess mankind has made
To see that our power and might just fail
As the real problems we never invade
Our battle is spiritual
As our enemy is real
Without Godís power and might
The devil will, from us, constantly steal
Yes it is not by might nor power
But by My Spirit saith the Lord
If we are going to win this battle
We must do battle with a spiritual sword
God is faithful if we fight His way
The enemy will never win
When we place our trust in His power
Many people will find their life begin
I know that I have said it many ways
But if you are not Holy Spirit led
The factual truth is this
You are carnal and spiritually dead
Paul said to the Galatians to walk in the spirit
And the lusts of the flesh they would not fulfill
We are either walking in one or the other
Weíre walking up or down the hill
Paul said to the Romans
That they that are in the flesh, God, you cannot please
So I wonder who then is really happy
If not God, must be the enemy.
