Truth to Power: Week 1 Day 2
Context: In Micah 2:1-13 we are still within the first cycle of judgment to hope. Micah prophesies judgment in 1:2-2:11 and hope in 2:12-13.
Read: Micah 2:1-13
What is the specific sin of the wealthy in 2:1-2? What is God’s judgment in 2:3-5?
What is the specific sin of the false prophets in 2:6-7, 11?
God speaks through Micah in 2:12-13. What image of God do you gain from 2:12?
What image of God do you gain in 2:13?
The term “remnant” means a small section of God’s people that remains his after exile from God’s promised land. In 2:12, God promises to gather this remnant from exile with the tenderness and care of a shepherd with their flock. In 2:13, God passes before them with the majesty and might of a King. This highlights for us, even when we become aware of our sins, our response is to follow and trust in our God.
Thank God that even with the heavy words of judgment from Micah, God is gathering his people as a merciful Shepherd-King.
Ask God that he would grow your trust and faithfulness as follow him in every area of your life.
