Zechariah 9: The King!

In Zechariah 9, God assured His people that their enemies would be judged. The people who had oppressed them would be punished. And He would send them a King. 

When I discussed the book of Zechariah with friends this summer, one friend summarized this chapter this way: "God goes all out." I love that. God loves His people. He cares for them extravagantly. In this chapter I see God giving them hope, and encouraging them to trust Him.

On that day the Lord their God will rescue his people,
    just as a shepherd rescues his sheep.
They will sparkle in his land
    like jewels in a crown.
How wonderful and beautiful they will be! (Zechariah 9:16-17 NLT)
