Being stuck at home these days compares little to suffering under a siege in an ancient city. But the lessons it offers us are very much the same. That’s probably why I have had numerous members of my Walking the Bible Lands videos suggest I make this video available to you. The encouraging truth it offers rings as true today as it did thousands of years ago.
In ancient Israel, a city wasn’t a city without a wall. Even in Jerusalem, a wall served as the primary means of protection from an enemy. The city walls of Jerusalem serve as a fitting metaphor for what God often does in our lives when we erect walls to keep Him out.
But God lays siege to our lives not to destroy us, but to restore us.
