We recently took a road trip that covered 3,400 miles, 8 days and the trip took us to 9 different states. When you drive that many miles in a short amount of time, it gives you a “glance” of how large our country is. The different states allowed us to see all the variances in topography, trees, birds, roads, flowers, but the one thing that stayed consistent was the sky. The clouds and the blue sky were always over us. No matter which state we were in, which road we were on, we could always look up and see a very similar scene.
Zechariah 14:9 “God will be king over all the earth, one God and only one. What a Day that will be!”
In this verse, the context is specifically about God bringing victory for Jerusalem, from their enemies. I feel that same hope and faith still applies to us today. We need victory from our enemy – this sinful world we live in. We need our God to be the one king that rules over all the earth. We need one God and ONLY one God. The second coming can’t possibly come fast enough. In the meanwhile, no matter where you are, the state or the country – all you have to do is look up. The view will be similar (some places may have more clouds). We all can look up and envision OUR God returning for His people. What a day that will be!
