We see in this chapter God’s woe on wicked rulers who abuse power.
We see in Micah 3:1-3 how they destroyed people instead of developing them
We see in Micah 3:5-7 they misled people into confusion, instead of leading them in a cause.
We see in Micah 3:9-10 they distorted justice instead of upholding justice for the common man.
We see in Micah 3:11-12 they took bribes for themselves instead of taking responsibility for the people.
Are we not seeing The same things happening today. I am so grateful that He has given to us the church the wonderful gift of prayer.
Let us pray today in line with the verses we have read:
Micah 3:1 Lord, in this world of blurred lines between good and evil, help us to clearly and definitely know right from wrong and to hate evil and love good.
Micah 3:8 Pray for all those that God has raised up today, who fearlessly point out the failures and rebellions of God’s people. Pray that God’s people will be responsive and make the necessary changes for God’s glory.
The prophet paints a picture of what life will be like in the future, during the last days, a glorious vision and we can get excited about it. The house of the Lord was to be a strategic place as we see in Micah 4:1, an influential place as we see in Micah Micah 4:2, and also equipping place Micah 4:2.
As we run to win!
God is giving us a clear picture – that is the ability to see the vision.
He is raising up a committed people that have the ability to transmit the vision.
He is causing us to have consistent prayer – which gives us the ability to intercede for the vision.
Just sitting and listening in the women’s conference this week, which at present is being held in our local church, I can see He has released a constructive passion which is giving the members in the fellowship the ability to work toward the vision.
And what is just blessing me beyond what I could think or even imagine is to see the calm persistence that has been released upon the church, which has granted the ability for us to patiently wait for the vision.
The Lord has caused us to see it, say it, and show it before we seize it! Amen
So we pray in line with Micah 4:
Micah 4:3-4 Father please spread peace throughout the world today, let hearts and lives be touched by the power of Your Holy Spirit that leads and guides us into all truth.
Micah 4:7 Lord we take this verse and cry out. Lord, rule in my heart as king forever.
Micah 4:12 Lord, I do not know your thoughts or understand your plan, but I submit to Your wisdom and trust in your love today.
Proverbs 14:2 Father, please help me to follow the right path in everything I do today, I love You, and I want to walk with You throughout my life.
Proverbs 14:10 Lord today I acknowledge the fact that only You fully understand me. Even my closest friends and family don’t really know all of me. You know all my joys and sorrows. I want to thank You Lord for loving me.
In the face of doubts that sometimes enter your mind, reaffirm your faith in Jesus, the Messiah right now! Ask Him to reveal Himself to you in spirit and in truth and to make you willing to hear and understand.
