There is a great temptation to overestimate our own ability and underestimate the Spirit of the Lord, but those who preceded us in faith did not benefit the kingdom of God through self-sufficiency. Alistair Begg turns to the prophet Zechariah to share a word of encouragement for times of external opposition and internal discouragement. This passage reminds us that earthly means cannot sustain us. It is only the Spirit of the Lord Who is sufficient to carry us through any circumstance.
