I want to be like Micaiah

I have enjoyed this week’s reading.  Is enjoy the right word?  Micaiah has become a new hero, an example of faithfulness to God in a hard situation.  “As unknown (to the world) and yet well known (to God). . .as sorrowful yet always rejoicing. . .as having nothing yet possessing all things” is the way the Apostle Paul described his life (and Micaiah’s) in 2 Corinthians 6:9-10. May the Lord give us courage for this difficult and blessed road!  When we pray, “Deliver us from evil” we must be careful that we do not unconsciously mean, “please keep me from any difficult or dangerous task”.  “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross” says the Christ to every follower.   Micaiah helps me remember what this looks like in actual experience.  I am looking forward to seeing you in a few hours.  The Lord will be near as we gather.  Glory!  Don
