23 Jan Consecration Day 12 – Show Me Your Protection
Friday, January 23, 2015
“‘For I,’ says the Lord, ‘will be a wall of fire all around her, and I will be the glory in her midst’ … For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye.” (Zechariah 2:5,8)
God’s glory is a protective covering. When the Israelites were in the wilderness, they were covered by a cloud of glory in the daytime and a pillar of fire at night (Numbers 9:15-16). The fame of God went out to her enemies that God protects His children (Numbers 13:13-14). Here’s good news: God’s glory has never stopped leading, guiding, and protecting His children. Even in Revelation 10:1, John recorded how he saw a mighty angel come down from heaven “clothed with a cloud” and “his feet like pillars of fire”. There is safety in the presence of the Lord.
Mighty God, thank You for surrounding me with the shield of Your glory. I bless You and honor You for Your constant protection of me and my family in Jesus’ Name.
Lord, please show me Your glory!
