“ Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.” (Zechariah 4:6).
My way led up a hill, and right at the foot, I saw a boy on a bicycle. He was pedalling uphill against the wind and evidently found it a tremendously hard work. Just as he was working most strenuously and doing his best painfully, there came a truck going in the same direction–up the hill. Just like they would in Bequia. A little help will do any time it is available.
It was not going too fast for the boy to get behind it, and with one hand to lay hold of the bar at the back. Then you know what happened. He went up that hill like a bird. Then it flashed upon me:
Why I am like that boy on the bicycle in my weariness and weakness. I am pedalling uphill against all kinds of opposition, and am almost worn out with the task. But here at hand is a great available power, the strength of the Lord Jesus. There are so many times in our lives that we need to reach out to that available help that comes our way. Our God is a very present help in times of trouble. Help is always available for us if we will accept it.
“I have only to get in touch with Him and to maintain communication with Him, though it may be only one little finger of faith, and that will be enough to make His power mine for the doing of this bit of service that just now seems too much for me.” And I was helped to dismiss my weariness and to realize this truth. Yes, it is the truth that God is more than able to do the things He promised us.
