The Apple of His Eye

Zechariah 2:8

For the LORD of Hosts says this: “He has sent Me for His glory against the nations who are plundering you, for anyone who touches you touches the pupil of His eye.”

Some translations refer to the pupil of His eye as the apple of His eye. Indeed, when the enemy attacks us and tries to steal what God has given us, God feels like someone is poking Him in the eye. He will immediately begin to protect His people, who are the apple of His eye.

If something irritates your eye, you are distracted. You begin to try to brush that thing away. It has your immediate attention. The same is true for God when something attacks us. While it may seem to us as if God doesn’t care or is not interested, He is actually brushing that thing out of the way because it is offensive to Him. We always have His full attention as the apple or pupil of His eye.

If something is hurting you today, it is hurting God, too. He does care, He hears your cry, and He is working on your behalf. Nothing – absolutely nothing – is going to destroy God’s eye or His vision for you. You are protected as the apple of His eye, and He is already battling for you.

Have a blessed day!
