The people were being led in the wrong direction as recorded in Zechariah 10. Instead of praying and getting answers from God on how to overcome the obstacles they faced, they were depending on idols. The people were spiritually blind and led in the wrong direction.
This world is sometimes a broken place and we lose our way without a home. Sometimes it’s our own fault but sometimes it’s just the situation we are placed in. Either way, we can be rescued by receiving God’s grace, praying to God for help, and accepting Jesus as our Rescuer.
Only in the Messiah are we connected to the power of God and are closely connected to God, His Spirit enables us to do His will despite the obstacles (vv. 6-7). Like a farmer who needs rain for the crops to grow, we need spiritual nutrients from God’s Word and protection from the negatives. Like insects and disease on a crop, the negatives can infiltrate to destroy.
The choice is ours. We can plant the seeds that God gives as Spiritual nutrients for our soul or we can plant negative seeds that poison. This day with God, amazing results will occur because we are planting the things of God which are nutrients for the soul.
Today, I’m praying for staying close to God and His Word; that His Spirit enables me to do His will. I’m admitting wrong or negative thoughts at times and praying for Godly thoughts. Today my hope is to be connected to the power source through Jesus.
