Zechariah 4:6-7, AMP

6 Then he said to me, “This [continuous supply of oil] is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel [prince of Judah], saying, ‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit [of whom the oil is a symbol],’ says the Lord of hosts. 7 ‘What are you, O great mountain [of obstacles]? Before Zerubbabel [who will rebuild the temple] you will become a plain (insignificant)! And he will bring out the capstone [of the new temple] with loud shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’”

  • It has been decreed and established that as you spiritually rebuild you can expect that something supernaturally different is going to happen
    • However it will not be by your effort, might, power, Law, Tradition, or Religion
    • The Supernatural will be by the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God
    • No obstacles will be any match for the Holy Spirit
    • As you engaged in Spirit-Led Rebuilding — You will encounter opposition and obstacles and obstruction— But the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit, The Spirit Of Grace will cause all opposition, obstacles, and obstruction to become insignificant, small…it will not stop the plan and will of God for your life!
    • Grace (God’s Unmerited Favor) will be seen, manifest
    • Social Location Application:
      • We believe that we will be Led by The Spirit
      • We believe that we will not have to depend upon our own efforts
      • We believe that we have to be open to the way of the Lord
      • We believe that we should expect something supernatural to happen
      • We believe that God’s Got Us and He will direct us into works of Faith if necessary and not works of the flesh

1 Corinthians 10:13, AMP

No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy].

  • Even when you feel beaten up, even when the wind has gotten knocked out of you, when you feel you targeted, or when everything that can go wrong–IS GOING WRONG, and you are feeling the pressure of the tempter, trying to tempt you to take a course of action that is contrary to the Word and Will of God the Spirit of a God, the Holy Spirit is present to be your Helper, Comforter, Advocate, Counselor, Strengthener, and Standby—because God is FAITHFUL…
  • God has not left you, The Holy Spirit, Spirit of God, Spirit of Grace is present…
  • The Spirit of Grace will provide you with corresponding grace sufficient, equal to, more than enough that you will be able to endure…
