Uncover the Layers

today's reading.
Zechariah 9:9-17    Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey...
Zechariah 9:9-17

think about it.
What reasons are given for rejoicing? What will the Lord do for His people? What do you look forward to seeing God do?

We're taking a break from Revelation today and looking at prophecy from Zechariah 9. The Book of Zechariah was written to the Jews of Jerusalem who returned from captivity. But no worries, because there are plenty of lessons here for us as well.

I read Zechariah 9:9-17 several times. In my first read through I found myself focusing in on the details of this passage--what was happening with the Jewish people and Zechariah's words to them regarding the future. But as I went back and read these verses a couple more times, my focus switched from the details of Zechariah's message, to God. I was actually a little surprised at how much information Zechariah 9:9-17 provides us about Him.

So read Zechariah 9:9-17 again but this time with a specific focus on God. Then, tell us what you saw, how it impacted you and what you can do with this information. Tami W.
