As a new Christian, I’m not sure if I really understood the wording of this scripture at the time. After all, what is ‘might’ and how does it differ to ‘power’? Moreover, why does God instruct us to operate in His Holy Spirit rather than rely on human ability?
In researching the scripture for this post , I came across an answer on the Internet in which ‘might’ was described as ‘strength.’ It was illustrated by the fact that a person can have ‘might but have no power’ because it is dependent on the ability to do things or know certain information or posses a type of personality that draws people to you. Hence, why Zechariah advises that our human ability to manipulate might, power, popularity, charisma, persuasiveness (et al) need to be set aside if order that the Spirit can be given free reign to convict, encourage, enliven and empower in a way that honours God. In other put our egos aside and allow God through His Spirit to speak.’
