For thus says the Lord of hosts, “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apples of
His eye.” Zechariah 3:8
The Lord calls you the apple of His eye. In the pupil of another person’s eyes, we can see a reflection of ourselves. The pupil is referred to as the “apple of the eye.” We are literally in the apple of God’s eye as our gaze locks with His. Also, His image is reflected in us as we keep our eyes on Him.
The enemy fears who God created you to be and He knows you are meant to reflect Him. Therefore, the enemy has plundered and taken from you. His intent is to destroy God’s creation and squelch His image bearer. However, the Lord’s heart is to restore you to wholeness and take back all the enemy has plundered.
The Lord will gain back what is rightfully yours and bring glorious redemption.
Father, my heart rejoices that I am called the apple of Your eye. Thank You for fighting for me and taking back what the enemy has stolen. Father, I pray that I would keep my eyes fixed on You so that I would indeed reflect Your glory. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
