The God Who Restores, w4d1
Today’s SOAP: Micah 5:4

And he will stand to lead his flock with the Lord’s strength,
in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God.
Then his people will live there undisturbed,
for he will be highly honored around the world.

Micah 2:4 NET


  • Jesus will take His place as the Shepherd of God’s people. (we are the flock the sheep of His pasture – see Psalm 100:3)
  • Jesus will do His work by God’s strength and authority.
  • [We], His people, will live securely because He reigns!


  • I have a good Shepherd.
  • His strength and authority belong to God.
  • Through Him, I can/will live securely – because Christ and His Kingdom will last forever.

Prayer: Response to God’s Word

Father, I don’t always understand Your Word – especially the prophecies – but what I do know and trust is Jesus is the Great Shepherd, my Shepherd – who rules and reigns and has made a way for me to live securely and forever with You! – I praise You for these truths in the name of Jesus – Amen!

  • How is God calling your heart to Him this week?
    me: In compassion He’s calling me to be still and know/remember that He is God – to keep my eyes on Him and not the circumstances or busyness of life
  • What is He doing in your life that displays His great mercy and love as well as His holiness?
    me: He is giving me strength for each new day and the peace that truly passes all understanding. He is graciously showing me mercy through His patience with me when I mess up, and forgiving me when I sin.
