Hello, today my sister and I are doing our post together on Zechariah 12:8
“On that day the Lord will shield those who live in Jerusalem, so that the feeblest among them will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, like the angel of the Lord going before them.
God is saying that on the day that people attack Judah and Israel, He will make them strong. He would make even the weakest like David, strong, and able to withstand anything; they could withstand anything because God would be with them.
Israel is actually a picture of us. All those who believe in what Jesus did on the cross are His people. Jesus, the son of God, died on the cross with all of our sin to make us God’s people. Those who trust in Jesus are shielded by God, and even when we are feeble and tempted God will strengthen us and help us!
When we trust in Jesus we become God’s children, and we because people of the New Jerusalem! Because of that, God protects us and shields us, but that doesn’t mean that we won’t go through hard times. We will go through hard times, but when we do we can focus on Jesus and we know that He loves us because he died for us on a cross! We know that we are safe because of Him!
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland and,
