RE Verse reading–Micah 1:1-6, 2:1-3, 3:1-8 (day four) “But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the Lord” (3:8) As Micah observes the people of Judah at the close of the 8th Century BC, he marks a dramatic contrast between himself and others. They are ashamed and confused (vs 7). He is filled with power and the Spirit of the Lord. They are overwhelmed by life. He sees clearly the path ahead. This is not spiritual pride. It is an honest report of the life that the Holy Spirit sponsors in those He fills. While people of Judah were praying and not receiving answers (vs 4), Micah was experiencing the Answer of God for our human frailty. ” I will ask the Father, and He will give you Another Comforter, that He may be with you forever” (John 14:16) May the Lord help us realize, like Micah, that the Spirit is God’s answer to our prayers. He is what we need.
