‘So he answered and said to me: "This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' Says the Lord of hosts.”’
Zechariah 4:6 (NKJV)
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
Ephesians 3:20-21 (NKJV)
There was a bus driver in the United Kingdom who drove a busload of people to a Billy Graham crusade in the 1950s. As the passengers got off the bus one woman invited the driver to come into the event with them. The driver politely declined. He was then again rostered to take another group to the next crusade and the same thing happened. Someone else invited him in to hear Billy Graham. Again he declined. A few years later he moved to Australia and guess what! He drove another busload of people to a Billy Graham crusade in Sydney. Again someone invited him into the showground to hear the evangelist. This time he figured God was trying to get his attention and went with them and gave his life to Christ. His life was supernaturally changed. All over the world there are millions of stories of how people’s lives have been radically changed after committing their lives to Jesus Christ. Very often as people look back they will acknowledge the supernatural intervention of God to bring them to a place of decision. The supernatural does not always look as spectacular as Jesus calming the storm or the dead being raised. It can simply be an invitation from someone who God sent to a bus driver, not once but three times - ‘Angels’ do not always have wings. In the Old Testament Zerubbabel built a temple which at first glance is ‘just a building project’ - yet God said it would be built with His supernatural help. If you have been tempted to look at what is in your hands and think it is unspectacular, maybe it’s time to see things differently. What you commit to God He can take and use in ways you did not realise were possible - someone’s life could be changed like that bus driver.
