True Vertical

They shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel.  (Zec 4:10 )


The ancient engineering tool still used today is called a plummet...some of us call a plumb bob.

I grew up with a homebuilder dad and I remember well him breaking out the transit and scoping out a new street or a new foundation for a home. Along with that surveyor’s transit was the plummet, which helped him discover “true vertical”. True vertical in our lives is not a matter of opinion, but a real time statistic in the hands of the master builder, Jesus. Only he has the ability to be the plummet, the plumb bob for our lives. We can pretend that there is no right or wrong and that we make this stuff up as we go along, but God knows different. He is our true vertical...our true north. The people rejoiced when they saw the plummet in the hands of Zerubbabel, one they considered able to measure in truth. We also should rejoice that the plummet of our lives...our “upright” is in the hands of One who is able to deliver us from every snare of wickedness found in this life. All we must do is trust His true vertical.      plr
