The LORD their God will save them in that day as the flock of his people; for they are like the jewels of a crown, lifted on high over his land.
Today’s verse is just one of God’s promises that He is the God who is completely loyal to those who are His.
If you read the entire account from which this verse comes from, you would know God gave the Israelites victory over strong and seemingly unbeatable armies. And in doing so, God’s people enjoyed restoration AND a double portion of His blessings.
But why would He do that? Hadn’t Israel been defiant and disobedient? Yes, but the God of blessings is also the God of grace and mercy. When we look to Him for our every need, He treats us like the treasured jewels we are to Him.
So don’t try to do life on your own. Look up to God and receive the living hope found only in God’s Son, Jesus. Just like God gave victory to the Israelites, He will give you victory over the most difficult and painful situations life throws your way. So go ahead-give your burdens to the Lord and watch Him overcome anyone and anything Satan tries to use to destroy you.
Let God lift you high; keeping you safe and protected.
Father, thank You for considering me a priceless and treasured jewel. Thank You for lifting me on high and for the blessings You bring to my life. In the name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
