The prophet Micah looked around at the condition of the nation-family and realized that his hope in God would surpass the limitations of Israel. Micah sang the blues about his neighborhood. Listen to the cry for something better than human failure and weakness.
In the broken and trustless realms of human disappointment, we watch and hope in Jesus. He is the Savior who comes to bring justice and mercy to the loners and orphans with nowhere else to turn.
We live in the promise of God to renew and restore. We will go through the fire and all that is good will remain. We will not be afraid because Jesus has gone ahead and opened the way. He is able to keep us through the controlled burn.
