I came across this verse, Zechariah 2:5, while reading the other day. And a couple hours later, I saw it again, on Pinterest. Don't you love when God repeats things to you to nail them into your heart until you believe them?
God promises to be "a wall of fire around her". Woow. Does that blow anyone else's mind? The Lord DECLARES that He WILL BE a fiery hedge of protection around YOU. He is going to protect you at all costs, no matter what. WITH A WALL OF FIRE!
But He doesn't stop there- He states that He will "be the glory in our midst". He will be the glory to cling to when the circumstances are too messy to look at for a second longer. We serve a God that excels at taking our situations and turning them around to make Him look good. But we have to surrender the situation before He can do anything with it.
This verse is such a beautiful image of the security the Lord promises us. I hope it blesses you as it blessed me.
