Today I have MADE you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand, against the whole land…” [Jeremiah 1:17-19]

The internal growth that we spoke of yesterday is fruit bearing.  It is what God has MADE you to BE!  Whatever you ‘saw’ in response to the question, ‘what do you see’ is God’s Word [plan] being fulfilled.  God has placed you where you are as a means of salvation.  He’s in control.  You will recognize in yourself these three attributes as the internal truth of His Word.

Healthy boundaries – a fortified city is a place of safety.  Its walls are restored and impenetrable to all that is unwelcome, uninvited, or unhealthy.

Godly Character – Iron pillars are unbendable.  They reveal a character that will not compromise or cave-in and neither can it be manipulated.

Stability – Nothing is more bold or balanced or unshakable than a bronze wall.  It is immovable.  It’s not ‘willy nilly’ nor does it waffle.  It’s the same yesterday, today and forever!

To be MADE and molded in this fashion is to “set your face like a flint” [Isaiah 50:7].  “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” [1 John 5:4]
