Bible Text: Zechariah 4:1-14 |


After 70 years of captivity by the super-power Babylon, and after an even greater super-power, Persia, conquered Babylon, the Jewish exiles were allowed to return to Judah and resettle it. When they return to Jerusalem they find their city and temple in ruins. They were discouraged and felt weak. Then God’s word came to them that He would rebuild their city. It wouldn’t be by their might or power but it would be by God’s Spirit. What could you do if you knew God was behind you? The power of God’s Spirit will be seen in our first step of obedience.
