God’s Wall of Fire

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)

Today’s verse describes “a wall of fire”, amazing, powerful and yet protective, not destructive. God’s wall of fire encloses around us to keep us in His presence. God’s wall of fire burns with the power of His glory in our midst. What a sight (or thought) to behold! Fire is used in the Bible to describe God’s presence, a consuming fire of holiness. For us, we are to revere God’s presence for His holiness and perfection, but to also take comfort in knowing that He is that fire of protection around us.

When I walk the beach or gaze upon a mountainside, I am reminded of God’s indescribable creative power. He is truly an awesome God. His hand of protection is always upon us. His love is evident in everything around us. Take time today and reflect on the beauty of God’s glory. Ask the Lord to show you things you have never seen before, maybe you will get a glimpse of His wall of fire and His glory in your midst. Spend time intimately with the Lord and you will find that you pay less attention to things that truly do not matter to your life. May He fill you with His love, joy and peace.

What truth! I pray that today you will choose to spend time intimately with The Lord, even if that means sitting quietly in a park, on your drive into work, in your back yard or as your walking around through your day, pause for a moment and ask The Lord to give you a glimpse of things you may have never seen before. Let’s take the time today and do as it says in this devotion, reflect on the beauty of God’s glory. He is truly an awesome God and His hand of protection is always upon us. Amen!

Have a wonderful day in The Lord!
