Not in My Bow or Sword

I love whenever I read passages of scripture that indicate what actually saves us. It’s never our strength or our cleverness or any of our resources. It’s always the Spirit of the Lord. I see that again in Psalm 44 where we read, “I do not trust in my bow, my sword does not bring me victory; but you give us victory. . .”

It reminds me of the powerful line in Zechariah 4:6: “Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,” says the Lord of Hosts.

I think of anything I rely upon, especially with upcoming speaking events. Nothing happens because of natural talent, clever words, or flashy presentations; what changes people is the Holy Spirit.
