KEY VERSEZechariah 12:5 (God to Zechariah)
And the clans of Judah will say to themselves, “The people of Jerusalem have found strength in the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, their God.”

I am the one who formed the earth, who stretched out the heavens, and who created you. I am all-powerful, and I am with you. As your heavenly Father, I will protect you. I will make you like an immovable rock. Your enemies will expect to defeat you but will not have success. I will give you the strength you need when you need it. Don’t run or fear. Call on me and face your enemy with confidence.

I keep a watchful eye over you. I know all that is happening in your life, and I shield you from more than you know. I do this because I love you. Even when you are weak, I will make you powerful. I have poured out my Holy Spirit on you. He will enable you to be grace-filled in the midst of challenges. Follow me as I lead you. Be strong in my name.

Thank God that he keeps a watchful eye over you as he has over Israel. Thank God for his protection and his gift of the Holy Spirit. If you have a specific concern in your life, talk to God about it, but thank him that he already knows about it and is already engaged.
