Zechariah 4:6-9: So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts. ‘Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone With shouts of “Grace, grace to it!” ’ ” Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying: “The hands of Zerubbabel Have laid the foundation of this temple; His hands shall also finish it. Then you will know That the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you.
God starts because He finishes/finished
Prioritize what God told you to do. Don’t allow these things to stop you
- Opposition may come within or without
- Financial Ruins
You are the steward over the assignment God had given you.
You have to finish/complete the assignment
It’s not going to be by our human efforts that we finish
- Not how smart we are
- Not by who we know
- Not by our connections
If God wants you to do something He’ll keep telling you.
Don’t neglect the house of God. We’ve allowed distractions to take us off course.
We allow the failure of our past to become the profit of our future. By doing this we limit who God is in our lives.
We must be strong because God is with us. And His spirit remains within us. The grace and the ability to finish is still on you.
God didn’t call us just to start
- You will finish what you started -In your mind and heart….It Is DONE
- The call on your life is necessary
- There’s an anointing on us to finish
Why did the temple have to be finished? What was so important?
God had to show Zerubbabel that He was a PROVIDER (Haggai 2:6-8 & Psalm 24)
- We limit the provisions of God to what we can do
- God is bigger than paying a light bill
- Take the limits off God
God had to Release/Fill the temple with His PRESENCE (Haggai 2:7;9)
- The presence of the Lord is on us to finish
- Gain knowledge and incite
God had to give His PEACE (Haggai 2:9) – Completeness and Soundness
If you commit to finish God promises to bring to us:
- Who you need
- What you need
- When you need it
The hand of the Lord is upon us to finish. Our commitment to finish is bigger than us. As you finish there are doors that will be opened for you. God will use you as a door opener for others. There are a lot of people standing in line waiting on us to finish. There are people attached to our finishing.
Self-doubt and personal sabotage are no excuses. You God are the author and the finisher of our faith. Commit today to finish. We are not just he
