September 22 "Promises for the Weakest" Zechariah 10, 11, 12, 13, 14

Zechariah 12: 7-8
God gives us this promise fast-forward to this very day. It's for the weakest. And my spirit perked up because of the faltering moments I encounter. Matthew Henry puts it this way: "God will protect and strengthen the meanest and weakest that belong to his church, and work salvation for them. And as a preparative for all this mercy, and a promise of it, He will pour upon them a spirit of prayer and repentance." These promises were a life-line to the Jews who cared so much about following God under the rule of the evil Antiochus. And these promises are for this very day, for our churches. May God direct our prayers and deepen our hope in the gospel.

COME BOLDLY:  Timeless Prayers
Oh Father, You wrote this ages ago for the weakest and meanest.  We still are.  Strengthen and encourage us feeble and faint and fickle with the beauty of the Gospel this day and forward.
