Part of the assurance given to God’s people in today’s passage is that we are “the apple of his eye” (Zech. 2:8). The Lord loves us so deeply and thoroughly that He will not let those who impenitently rise up against us finally get away with it. God never forgets His children, so even when we are suffering the worst kind of harassment, He sees it and will set it right in the end. Let us be confident in the Lord’s love for us even in the midst of our trouble.
