Scripture Reading: Zechariah 2: 1 – 5
Our God is kind and full of mercy; He is patient and keeps His promises. He is always ready to forgive and not punish. He says in Isaiah 54: 10, “For the mountains may depart, the hills be shaken, but my love for you will never be shaken, says the Lord who takes pity on you”. Dear reader, you are part of the new Jerusalem to which the Lord almighty said, “I have deep love and concern for Jerusalem, my holy city and I am angry with the nation that enjoy at the expenses of your destiny, family and welfare. If they do not repent and remove their hands from all that concerns you, they will be badly hurt by God almighty”.
In a vision, Zechariah saw a man with a measuring line: this man was a surveyor who was planning a new wall for Jerusalem. May be the enemies have tried to create spiritual, financial and material boundaries for you. They planned in their secret meetings to limit you to certain boundaries. They conspired together and said that you shall not move beyond this boundary or wall in life. The scripture says, “One Angel of the Lord stepped out and another followed. “Alleluia” “The first Angel said to the other, “Run and tell that young man with the measuring- line that there are going to be so many people and so many livestock in Jerusalem that it will be too big to have walls” (Zechariah 2:3-4). Beloved, though the wicked forces came together against you to limit you in the past, the good news is that two angels of God, have stepped forward for your sake and stopped the operations of these wicked forces set against you (Please believe this). Job 5: 11-12 say, “To set up on high those that be low: that those which mourn may be exalted to safety; He disappoints the devices of the crafty; so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise”
This is exactly what the Holy Ghost is assuring you about. He says to you that you are going to experience great prosperity in your spiritual, financial and material life; and that the wall which had been made by the evil surveyors cannot hold you. Secondly, the Holy Ghost says to you that the Lord Himself has promised to be your wall. Remember dear reader that the Lord in boundless, and that the Lord has promised to form a wall of fire round you and all that concerns you; to protect you, and then live in you, in all His glory (Say a loud Amen).
Dear friends, what else do you need? The promise of God has been made manifest to you. Believe it; hold on to it and thank God for it. God has put a stop to the activities of evil surveyors in your life. They operated successfully in the past, but no more again. Amen. Their hands can no longer perform their wicked enterprises on your life or anything that concerns you. No more fears! No more anxiety! Our God has come to save us! Let us pray.
