“Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the Lord shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem.” Zechariah 1 v16, 17 AKJV
The message-Living against what God has set forth in his word, especially in the good times when he has blessed, causes .God to look upon his people with suffering because they do not honor him. I believe he looks and feels this “affliction” because he cares enough to see them in their destruction. He chooses because he is God to help them understand how to get to better choices because he loves them.
Lord, I thank you for this day. Amen
