    Zachariah 2 has a lot of promises from God but it can only happen to the obedient children of God and not those that continues in their iniquities and refuse to surrender their life to Jesus. When you are in Jesus, God said he will build a wall of fire around you which speaks of protection from the devices of the enemy and you shall prosper on every side as he said i will spray you as the 4 wind

    Saw bold letter Zaccl 2 and read it as zachariah 2. It's very good to be reassured by the Lord that He determines our path, fights and wine our battles but most importantly that He reigns above all powers and principalities, that everlasting joy is promised and will be delivered to those who believe. Let's share this definite hope. He reigns, our Lord reigns.
