The Grace To Finish
Zechariah 4:9 NKJV “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."
Building a temple was no mean feat; it took Solomon seven years to build the first temple, and that was a time of prosperity and peace. Zerubbabel's financial strength was not as much as Solomon's, and in his time there were people that opposed the rebuilding of the temple: so God's word to Zerubbabel was a great boost and encouragement to him and the people of Israel at that time.
Sometimes we allow the size of a project or an assignment to overwhelm us; a lot of us will even give up before the work begins. As a child of God, understand that there's supernatural ability and supernatural assistance available for you at all times; all you need to do is to connect yourself to grace! God said to Zerubbabel, "Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts." Hallelujah! Don't be fixated on the size of the mountain before you, neither be bothered by the number of opposition or their strength; with God all things are possible!
I prophesy to you in the name of Jesus; you will finish whatever you start in the name of Jesus! When you start a thing, you will live long enough to finish it, nothing will cut you or your assignment short, in the name of Jesus! When you start a family, you will live long enough to see your children's children, and you will be divinely enabled to provide for all their needs! When you go to school, you will graduate! You will not be affected by any curse or evil policies, and all the help you need will be quickly made available to you! I declare today that your hands are strengthened and blessed! Whatever you do will succeed and last in the name of Jesus! So shall it be!
