BIBLE READING: Micah 7:7-11
Prophet Micah showed great faith in God as he proclaimed that he would wait upon God who hears and saves when help is needed. He has the confidence that God would bring him and the people through when times are tough, he will be patient knowing that the enemies cannot prevail. Though enemies triumph and insult now, they shall be silenced and put to shame.
How proudly the enemies of God’s people trample upon them in their distress, they are saying “where is the Lord their God”. As if because they were afflicted God had forsaken them, and they knew not where to find Him with their prayers and fasting. In their reproach they see the people of God as abandoned people and they reflect on their God as unkind and unfaithful one.
There is a message of hope coming to God’s people as the Prophet was informed “in the day that thy walls are to be built, in that day shall the decree be far removed” (Micah 7:11).
The decree shall be far removed – God’s decree concerning the captivity and Nebuchadnezzar’s decree concerning the perpetuality of it, his resolution never to release them, these shall be set aside and revoked, the yokes upon their necks shall be broken. After these, then their wall shall be built (salvation, deliverance, defense, favour, prosperity, good health etc) (Isa.43:19-20).
- Many are boasting themselves to be in-charge and must rule others at all cost, but our God is the final umpire who decides the judgment of every man. Job 42:1-2, Lk.1:37 –
- Tell God to prove that the Heavens do rule by disgracing those that believed they were born to rule whether they are qualified or not.
- All the nations are under the rulership of the Almighty God, Let’s tell God to show His power/might so that the people will fear Him (Ps.83:13-18).
- Ask God to cause the promised end-time revival by visiting all the nations of the world and granting His living Churches open doors. Ps.86:8-9 –
