Micah 7:8-9 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Micah 7:8-9

Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light. Because I have sinned against him, I will bear the LORD’s wrath, until he pleads my case and upholds my cause. He will bring me out into the light; I will see his righteousness. 


I love this verse for so many reasons. First, this is a promise from Micah about Jesus ! Micah is saying yes, we are all going to fall, some of us more than others, but that’s not the end! He is saying, “I may be down right now, but that’s not where I’m going to stay! There may be darkness all around me, but Jesus Christ is going to break through that darkness and deliver me!!”


What a great promise this is!! No matter where we are, or what we are going through, we don’t have to stay there!! We just have to give it to Jesus and accept Him as our LORD and Savior and He will lift us up. He will turn our darkest night into the brightest day!! Don’t give up. I am going to fall and fall and fall, but I don’t have to get up alone! Every time I do, there is a scarred hand reaching down to help me up!


To me, Jesus doesn’t show me His scars to shame me or make me feel guilty. He shows them to me as if to say, “Yup, you were worth it, and they tried to keep you from me, but My love was stronger!!”


I see love where hate should be and life where there used to be death!! You’re much too valuable to stay down. Look to Jesus and let Him guide you to His salvation!!


I love you all, God bless, and Glory to God, the Risen King, and the Great Comforter!!!!!!
