Day 98 April 8 Micah 4:3
Micah 4:1-4But when all is said and done, God’s Temple on the mountain, Firmly fixed, will dominate all mountains, towering above surrounding hills.People will stream to it and many nations set out for it, Saying, “Come, let’s climb God’s mountain. Let’s go to the Temple of Jacob’s God. He will teach us how to live. We’ll know how to live God’s way.”True teaching will issue from Zion, God’s revelation from Jerusalem. He’ll establish justice in the rabble of nations and settle disputes in faraway places.They’ll trade in their swords for shovels, their spears for rakes and hoes. Nations will quit fighting each other, quit learning how to kill one another. Each man will sit under his own shade tree, each woman in safety will tend her own garden. God-of-the-Angel-Armies says so, and he means what he says.God’s Temple will dominate all mountains.Many will go to the temple. Why?Because God teaches us how to live his way.Because it will be true teaching.There will be justice. Disputes will be settled.There will be no more war. We can stay home and care for our own.Lord, forgive me for not listening to your voice. Teach me how to live your way. Show me true teaching and keep me safe from teaching that is false.Bring justice into my life tempered by your grace and mercy. Let your righteousness reign in my life. Settle disputes within my small world. Help me to be a peacemaker.Fill my home with your hope and your joy. Show me how to live with grace. Let this day be filled with gentleness.
