I Shall Protect You

Though we are slaves, our God has not deserted us in our bondage. He has shown us kindness in the sight of the kings of Persia: He has granted us new life to rebuild the house of our God and repair its ruins, and he has given us a wall of protection in Judah and Jerusalem. -Ezra 9:9 (NIV) The Lord is saying that even though My people have gone into captivity because of their sins, I have not utterly forsaken them. I will yet show you kindness and extend My mercy in the very face of your captors. I will permit you to build up your relationship with Me which has been torn down and laid desolate. And I shall protect you in the Place of Praise and in the Place of Peace.
