Those who are far away will come and help to build the temple of the Lord, and you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me to you. This will happen if you diligently obey the Lord Your God. Zechariah 6:15
Building something large, like a house or an office building, requires many different people to make it happen. There is a need for the carpenter, the cement layer, the roofer, the A/C person, the painter, the plumber, the electrician, and more to make it happen. One cannot completely build a building on his own.
Normally to get all the help needed, all one has to do is have the money to pay for the help.
Zechariah tells Joshua, the priest, that he needs to rebuild the temple. He is also told that many will come to help him build it, but in order for that to happen, he must diligently obey God.
Many believers try to do great ministries on their own. They hear God’s call to build a ministry and so try to do it, without help.
This can work, but only to a point, or certain level, then it peaks out. Help is needed to grow it more. God has more than enough helpers to build ever ministry He starts. However, it must be done in His way and in His timing.
In other words, the believer must diligently obey God. That is to very carefully and with a full heart, work at doing what God commands or guides him to do. It is God’s ministry, not the believer’s.
God may not have every one build a ‘titled’ ministry, but every believer is to be a witness and make disciples, which are ministries in themselves. These are best done under God’s direction and leading. In time God will bring the needed support to keep moving forward.
God has a plan for your life. You may already know what that plan is. The question is are you listening to God’s directions on how to make it happen.
As you are willing to listen to and obey God in every area of your life, God will give you the needed strength, help and favor to accomplish His goals for your life. Only God knows how large a ministry He has for you, but you cannot know that unless you diligently obey Him and do what He guides you to do.
I pray today that you will hear God’s voice guiding you; that you will obey God’s every command; that you will know God’s favor; and that you will build God’s kingdom in His way.
