Micah 4: 1-4
4 1-4 But when all is said and done,
God’s Temple on the mountain,
Firmly fixed, will dominate all mountains,
towering above surrounding hills.
People will stream to it
and many nations set out for it,
Saying, “Come, let’s climb God’s mountain.
Let’s go to the Temple of Jacob’s God.
He will teach us how to live.
We’ll know how to live God’s way.”
True teaching will issue from Zion,
God’s revelation from Jerusalem.
He’ll establish justice in the rabble of nations
and settle disputes in faraway places.
They’ll trade in their swords for shovels,
their spears for rakes and hoes.
Nations will quit fighting each other,
quit learning how to kill one another.
Each man will sit under his own shade tree,
each woman in safety will tend her own garden.
God-of-the-Angel-Armies says so,
and he means what he says.
5 Meanwhile, all the other people
Many times I have seen wrestling matches, basketball games, football games and have gone through things in life that didn’t seem so well at times. At your job it may seem like those who do nothing make the money and those who break their backs struggle. At times it may seem like the kids are against you. It may seem like you can’t find a friend in the world to lean on. However, these verses today in the book of Micah declare that God is in control. It may seem like one way, but I declare if you hold on and keep your eyes on the true prize, God will sustain you!
Earthly treasures are nice, but they will not last. Heavenly treasures is what we must seek and focus on. So let those people continue to do nothing. Let those friends go. You continue to focus and know there is another prize waiting for us on the other side! Be blessed today!
