About 5 months ago I discovered a verse that has given me a vivid image of God's fierce, personal love for me.  I understand that in Zechariah the Lord is speaking through the prophet to His people Israel, but I believe there's a beautiful pictured promise here for you and me as well. In chapter 2 verse 5 it says this:

"I will be to her a wall of fire all around, declares the Lord, and I will be the glory in her midst."
His wall of fire all around protects me. His glory - His presence - is ever with me.

Over the past few months God has been showing me that His fierce love acts as my one line of defense against both my myself and the enemy. And I see that same fierce love as being my only hope of glory - His presence right here with me.…
