God has a plan for each of us and it has nothing to do with our doing better. Jesus’ hands laid the foundation and His hands will finish the work.
We have this Word, full of promises, that we can stand on that reveals to us all the things that we can do in His strength. It’s not about how we feel – it’s about the absolute truth that is our foundation. God has ordained for us to walk in victory.
God starts out the Book of Zechariah by reminding Israel that everything He has said has come to pass. His Word has endured, but the fathers are all gone. He promises to return to Jerusalem to dwell in His people in truth and holiness – if they will hear and obey. That promise endures today and we can escape judgment by taking shelter in Him.
