“This is what the Lord says to Zerubbabel: It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. Nothing, not even a mighty mountain, will stand in Zerubbabel’s way; it will become a level plain before him!” (Zechariah 4:6-7, NLT).
This is the verse God used to call me into full time ministry. It was this time last year that I quit my job at Outreach Events to serve young adults for Christ. It saddens me that over 70% of young adults leave the church after only one year of college. Whoever is to blame (church, parents, or secular colleges)–I believe God is BIGGER. Many times in Scripture God shows how much he loves his children.
I believe this verse is a call to everyone, not just to me. Today, ask the Lord to help you serve beyond your capacity, because the next generation is waiting!
