The word from God continues to Zechariah and the promise this time is reassuring. As the ministry builds, even the house Zerubbabel is building will be a sign that God has sent his message and presence to be with them through Zechariah the prophet. And while some may despise this reassurance as a “small thing” (verse 10) the sovereign God does not (10b).
It may be hard to understand the comfort this promise brings to those in faith-walks until one puts themselves out there publicly in reaching out to others. Being reminded that God’s sovereign hand as well as special people He brings to us in the day to day goings on reaffirms a call in the midst of negativity and naysayers and just plain hard work. Lord, bring those signs and reminders into our lives and walks.
