A Promise

Today, I am going to meditate on this passage from Zechariah 9:16 –  “The LORD their God will save them on that day as the flock of his people.   They will sparkle in his land like jewels in a crown.”  If jewels represent the power and wealth of an earthly king (have you seen pictures of England’s crown jewels?!), imagine yourself today as the representation of God’s sovereignty in the earth. That will do something for low self-esteem. He created us to live in this world as His glory. I’m not sure I do a great job of that all the time, but this Scripture certainly makes me want to walk a little taller, stand a little straighter, and smile a little brighter. After all, I am made for this.
