OVERVIEW: Joshua, the priest, is crowned as king. This act was symbolic of the coming Messiah, the Branch.
BIG IDEA: A time of peace is coming, and God will bring it.
KEY VERSE: Zechariah 6:13 (God to Joshua)
Yes, he will build the Temple of the Lord. Then he will receive royal honor and will rule as king from his throne. He will also serve as priest from his throne, and there will be perfect harmony between his two roles.
IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I have been working my plan all along, and it will come to fruition soon. I am going to crown the Messiah as King, and he will rule the world. Do you have doubts or concerns today? Bring them to me. If I can rule the world and bring all pieces of a puzzle together, I can take care of your needs today. Trust me with them. Do not worry or be fearful. Turn to me and let me lead you.
It is not wrong to have doubts or fear. That does not make me angry. I don’t want you to worry because there are more meaningful ways to use your time and energy. I want you to invest your time more productively. Don’t spend—or waste—time trying to control things that are not for you to manage. Use your effort to worship me and to serve others. Take comfort that I have all things under control. Focus on where I lead you today.
God has a plan, and it is coming together. Worship him today and thank him for Jesus. Trust God for all that is going on in your life, even if you have many questions and doubts.
