“But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
Too little to be among the clans of Judah,
From you One will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel.
His goings forth are from long ago,
From the days of eternity.” Micah 5:2 NASB
When the magi approached King Herod, because they were following the star of Bethlehem, it concerned him that another ruler would rule Israel in his place.
He asked his advisors where the Messiah would be born. They knew because of the prophecy in Micah 5. They knew God’s Word, but did it make a difference?
God’s Word is filled with insight, prophecies, words to live by, commands and more. We have it, in easy to read translations, audio and video versions and more. Does it make a difference?
It won’t make a difference unless you consistently read it and accept it as God’s Word. It won’t make a difference unless you ask the Holy Spirit to illuminate the Scriptures to your heart and mind.
You have the very words of God in easy access. Are you taking the time to get in His Word?
Father, give me a love for Your Word. Show me Your ways and help me to live according to them.
