I want to be like Micah...

Micah 3

Micah had a tough job as the deliverer of God's messages of judgment and destruction. He wasn't welcomed and what he said wasn't appreciated. In a popularity contest, Micah would have come in last place.

So why would I want to be like Micah? Take a look at Micah 3:8: "But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the Lord, and with justice and might." Strong words that demonstrate Micah's complete trust and confidence in God even in his difficult circumstances (and when he had a hard message to deliver). It's my desire to have that kind of trust and confidence as well.

So are you with me on being like Micah? How about some thoughts on developing, maintaining and displaying trust and confidence in God? Tami W.

It is tough being the bearer of bad news to someone who doesn't want to stop what their doing and look at where they are heading. I think the key to be like Micah is knowing you are just the messenger, and that God takes care of the conviction. You have to start everyday with prayer, and be able to separate yourself from the negative backlash that may come when you witness to an unbeliever. Trust where the Holy Spirit leads you, no matter how rough the road traveled may be.

Julie is right. Starting our day with the word and prayer will help us to deal with our enemy as he will rear his ugly head when the truth goes out.
In and of ourselves we are not worthy of delivering such a profound and high standard of truth to the world, but with the Holy Spirit we have power and boldness to deliver the Word of God.
Does that mean that on the days that we don't feel like we have 'fueled up' with the Holy spirit that we should not go forth with the word?
I would love some feedback about this...

Sometimes, I lean too heavily on studying the New Testament and leaving the Old Testament aside. Tami, I appreciated your highlighting Micah 3:8 because I need to be reminded to have the kind of trust and confidence that Micah had; and, also the applicability of the minor prophet books in daily living.

Thank you for sharing Micah 3:8, what a powerful message. All looks hopeless and seems impossible until you read "but as for me, I am filled with power, with the spirit of the Lord, and with justice and might!" Thank God, He is still filling us with His spirit! with justice and might! Glory to His name.

Robert, the 1st thing that came to mind when I read your question was “be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry” (from James 1:19) – I know for myself, if I would follow that I would hear the Holy Spirit more often. My thoughts are that even on the low fuel days God can speak through us, if He can speak through a donkey He can speak through us even on our off days. I know I deceive myself into thinking I'm not worthy of being His messenger but it's not about me it about Him. Let us all Boldly spread the word of God!
