Blessings to you!

His Birthplace Foretold

Day: 4


Pray

Lord God, teach me by Your Holy Spirit what You want me to learn from Your Word today.

Scripture

Micah 5:2-5 |
  “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
though you are small among the clans of Judah,
out of you will come for me
one who will be ruler over Israel,
whose origins are from of old,
from ancient times.”
 3 Therefore Israel will be abandoned
until the time when she who is in labor gives birth
and the rest of his brothers return
to join the Israelites.
 4 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.
 5 And he will be their peace.
    When the Assyrian invades our land
and marches through our fortresses,
we will raise against him seven shepherds,
even eight leaders of men.

Reflect

Where does the prophet say the “promised ruler” will be born?

Apply

What does it mean to you to know Jesus’ birth was planned and foretold by God long in advance? How might it affect your life today?

Pray

Show me Your plan for me, Lord, at least for today, so that I may know it and follow it.
