Another View on Grace

09 Jun

Zechariah 4:7 “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!”

So, Zerubbabel has a big problem.  So big, that it is labeled as a mountain.  And how do you move a mountain?

Jesus states in Matthew 17:20 that a mountain is moved by faith.  Even a small amount of faith!

So, what’s the point of shouting grace to the mountains in your life? Why not say “leave”?  Or “disappear”?  Or “Be gone?”  Or some long winded prayer about why that mountain shouldn’t be in your life and how it really needs to get out of the way?

Grace? Zerubabbel is told to shout “Grace”?

Zechariah 4:6 says, “‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts”.

The mountains in your life can’t be removed by your power.  That’s why faith is necessary.  They can only be removed by the power of God.

And that, my friends, is why you should shout “Grace”.  Shouting “grace” is this:

Informing the mountain that God is about to take care of it.

Releasing yourself from the pressure to have to perform at a level you are incapable of.

Trusting the Lord to do what has been stressing you out to no end.

Telling the enemy that you don’t rely on yourself, but on God.

Reminding yourself that if God takes care of the mountain, then there will NEVER be a mountain to big for Him to handle in your life.

Why not try shouting “Grace” today?  Go ahead.  You have God’s permission.
