“he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye.”

Today’s devotion comes from Zechariah chapter 2.  Here is a link to this chapter – https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Zechariah+2&version=NASB

I quote only the following verses.

“Ho, Zion!  Escape, you who are living with the daughter of Babylon.”  For thus says the LORD of hosts, “After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye.  For behold, I will wave My hand over them so that they will be plunder for their slaves.  Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent Me.  Sing for joy and be glad, O daughter of Zion;  for behold I am coming and I will dwell in your midst,” declares the LORD.  “Many nations will join themselves to the LORD in that day and will become My people.  Then I will dwell in your midst, and you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you.  The LORD will possess Judah as His portion in the holy land, and will again choose Jerusalem.

“Be silent, all flesh, before the LORD;  for He is aroused from His holy habitation.”  Zechariah 2:7-13.

The LORD protects His people.

The LORD dwells in the midst of His people.

“For I,’ declares the LORD, ‘will be a wall of fire around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.’”  Verse 5.

“Sing for joy and be glad …”  Verse 10.
