This phrase gives hope and encouragement to hang on and hang in there. It says that the situation is about to change. I’ve had to call for help when a car has broken down. I’ve also had the privilege to be the help on the way for my kids who have had a “fender bender” or a broken down vehicle. I’ve learned over the years that the Lord has all situations under control if I can just learn to trust Him. He is always my help and my hope.
Micah gives one of the prophetic words about the coming of Jesus into the world. The people didn’t quite understand what he was saying, but Hope & Help was on the way! Check this out…2 “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are too small to be among the army groups from Judah, from you will come one who will rule Israel for me. He comes from very old times, from days long ago.” 3 The Lord will give up his people until the one who is having a baby gives birth; then the rest of his relatives will return to the people of Israel. 4 At that time the ruler of Israel will stand and take care of his people with the Lord’s strength and with the power of the name of the Lord his God. The Israelites will live in safety, because his greatness will reach all over the earth.
5 He will bring peace. (Micah 5:2-5a NCV)
The Presence of the Lord changes everything! He helps me see that my current struggle is not permanent. He offers hope in the most hopeless times. He gives perspective that I desperately need most every day. Nothing or no one escapes His notice. He showers me with grace and mercy when I stumble and ignore His call. He is the Savior of my soul and I can’t imagine how I made it without Him. His Presence brings peace and healing to my soul. His greatness is indescribable! I’m so glad He came!Pressing On! Dwayne
