A Wall Of Fire Round About

For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.
— Zechariah 2:5

What a powerful promise!

Do you need a wall of fire, of protection around your life?

God has promised here to protect Jerusalem, His Church. As brides of Christ, we are the church. With the strongest walls or with no walls at all, God protects His people and all are welcome. 

No enemy can break through. 

"No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord." Isaiah 54:17

Not only does God promise defense from the outside, but glory inside. His very presence and favor in our midsts. Notice "round about." If we give God full control and reign over our lives, there is no area where we are not protected. 

As long as we seek God in our lives and all we do, Satan can not get in. We have a spiritual defense. Greater is our God than our enemy.

"Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them." Elisha prayed for the man's eyes to be open and he saw chariots of fire all around. 2 Kings 6:15-17

No matter what we are going through, greater is God. He offers a wall of protection and purification. Fire is purifying. We must go through seasons of purification as we stay in God's presence. He can protect us as we grow in Him. 

To Ponder:

Am I allowing God to create a wall of protection round about? Or am I leaving areas open to the enemy?



Create a wall of fire around my life. One that keeps the enemy out and Your glory in. Help me to reflect your glory with the way that I live. That it is clear that You are the one placed in charge of my life. 

Protect me from anything that would come against me, my family, and all I love. Be ever in my midst. I pray in Jesus Holy Name, amen.
