Verse of the Day, January 19, 2020
Zechariah 9:16 KJV “And the Lord their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land.”
The Sovereign LORD of Host has a great zeal and joy to deliver His people. This doesn’t start and end with the children of Israel, it includes the entire world.
Those who love the LORD and do His will, those who suffer for righteousness sake, those who are persecuted for His name’s sake. The LORD will save them as the flock of His people, and lift them up, lift us up like an emblem shining forth in His hand!
