You have been like a city that was broken into and without walls. I am teaching you to control your spirit. I am training you as a warrior and calling you to stand up and come into me. I have spread my robe out and over you. I am rebuilding you, finishing your walls, and repairing your foundations. You are becoming a walled city; a citadel where you will dwell in safety . Today I issue a decree as your King: The things stolen from you, the gold and silver of the temple, are to be returned and put back into you where they belong! I am releasing over you a spirit of joy. It comes as a radiant, yellow banner that speaks of new life and summer sunshine, for the joy of the Lord will be your strength.
Jeremiah 30:18 This is what the Lord says: I will certainly restore the fortunes of your tents and show compassion on your dwellings. Every city will be rebuilt on its mound; every citadel will stand on its proper site.
Citadel: 1. a fortress that commands a city and is used in the control of the inhabitants and defense during attack or siege. 2. any strongly fortified place; a stronghold.
