And he will be their peace. NIV
What a beautiful reminder! Just five words … powerful words.
Over a lifetime of reading Bible stories, and completing Bible studies, I don’t believe I’ve ever spent any real time studying Micah. And yet, here is a beautiful foretelling of Christ’s coming. The first part of Chapter 5 is called, “A promised ruler from Bethlehem,” in my NIV Bible.
I love what verse 4 says, “He will stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God. And they will live securely, for then his greatness will reach to the ends of the earth.” NIV
Such a beautiful word picture to start a beautiful, Fall week.
And He will be their peace …
That’s what I’ll think about today.
