Devotion 12-26-23 But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the Lord ; I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me. Micah 7:7. Micah was a prophet of the Lord. Where God sent him, he went. What God said to say, he said. Micah was sold out to God, totally God's man. God could trust him, and in reverse, he trusted God. Where, in the spectrum of things, are you? Where do you stand in relationship to God? Look at Micah's statement and see if you are able to say the same things as Micah. "But as for me..." He was not going to be influenced by other people. He would standing alone if necessary, standing on his personal relationship with the God of Creation. No other person was going to influence him away from the truth of God. "I will watch expectantly for the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation." Micah did not let people, their arguments, their persuasion, they're seduction, turn him from God. He set his eyes on God, on God's truth, and then firmly grounded, he watched and waited. He was not swayed by human influence; he was not taken off track by human situations. He determined, before it ever happened, that earthly chaos would not distract his heavenly concentration. "My God will hear me." Micah had absolute faith and trust in God, and God alone. He prayed, watched, and listened – only to God. His assurance was that God was there; God would act; God would hear. This does not mean Micah did not suffer confusion at times. This does mean that, in his confusion, he did not lose his faith in God. God was his Rock on which he stood. God is our Rock upon which we may stand. God is our strength. God is our life, our trust, our breath. Proverbs 3:5 - 6 - "Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight."
