My friends, I told you Wednesday that I had something amazing to share with you. I’ve been reading all the books of the prophets since last year and last week, landed in the book of Zechariah. As I read Zechariah 2, my spirit began to blaze and come to live. And verse 5 completely did me in. Take a look:
Then I looked up, and there before me was a man with a measuring line in his hand. I asked, “Where are you going?”
He answered me, “To measure Jerusalem, to find out how wide and how long it is.”
While the angel who was speaking to me was leaving, another angel came to meet him and said to him:
“Run, tell that young man, ‘Jerusalem will be a city without walls because of the great number of people and animals in it. And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will be its glory within.’”
As I read this, it was as if Abba whispered in my ear that we, the SUMites, are like Jerusalem in that we are a city without walls. And we are growing! And Abba’s promise is that He will be a wall of fire around us and our glory within!
My friends, I’ve been praying this for all of us since then. “Lord, be that wall of fire around us and our glory within!” Pray with me, SUMites, that we would be a blazing light in the world and shine for all to see. I believe Abba is going to be calling upon us to share our fire, our hearts, and His great love for all. This blaze was started right in our homes and now He is calling us to carry the torch into our churches and communities.
I don’t know what this will look like and I’m sure it will be different for each of us. As I shared in my post last week, we are being called and this is part of what Abba is revealing at this time. If you feel the Holy Spirit stirring a piece of this message in you, share it in the comments. Can't wait to hear your thoughts!
