Weekly Pursuit:

 

Verses:

 

Zech. 10:8 “I will whistle for them and gather them, for I have redeemed them; and they will multiply as they have multiplied.”

 

Excerpts:

 

The prophecy in Zechariah 10 concerns the Lord’s loving visitation to Israel, which is actually Christ’s coming to Israel. “Ask rain of Jehovah / At the time of spring rain, / Of Jehovah who makes the lightning, / And He will give them showers of rain, / To everyone herbage in the field” (v. 1). This indicates that we all need to pray for the Lord’s abundant blessing. “Jehovah of hosts has visited His flock, the house of Judah, / And will make them like His horse of majesty in battle” (3b). After being touched by the Shepherd, every weak sheep will become a horse of majesty. The Lord’s whistling is mentioned in verse 8. Often during our time of morning revival, the Lord whistles to us, calling us and gathering us to Him. “I will strengthen them in Jehovah, / And they will walk about in His name, / Declares Jehovah” (v. 12). This indicates that Jehovah will strengthen His people in Himself. They will then walk about in His name, which is to have their being in God’s name.

 

Often after we enjoy such a loving visitation, our situation changes. In His visitation He encourages us to seek more blessings。We are not that bold or strong, but after the Lord’s visitation with His dear touch, we are strengthened to become horses of majesty in battle. Eventually, the Lord strengthens us in Himself so that we may walk about in His name. (Life-study of Zechariah, msg. 10)
