Today’s Reading – Zechariah 11-12
The burden of the word of Jehovah concerning Israel. Thus saith Jehovah, who stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him: behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of reeling unto all the peoples round about, and upon Judah also shall it be in the siege against Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples; all that burden themselves with it shall be sore wounded; and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered together against it. (Zechariah 12:1-3 ASV)
Jerusalem will be a burden to those who oppose it. We have seen that is true in the last 50 years. Those who oppose Israel always seem to come up on the short end of the stick. Zechariah’s prophecy has come true in our lifetime as well.
Application to me – I am reminded today that all of God’s promises come true and are applicable to our life today in some way. It is our task to seek it out and find it.
