Job 23

The other day I was with a man who is blind in his left eye. At one point, he was startled by the fact that there was someone in his blind spot that he did not see. Because he did not see the man standing right next to him he almost knocked the man over when he quickly turned in that direction. Job begins this chapter with these words, "Today also my complaint is bitter..." (v.2). His complaint is bitter and his soul groans because of his trial. And in the midst of this trial Job says, "Oh, that I knew where I might find him, that I might come even to his seat! I would lay my case before him and fill my mouth with arguments." (v.4) Job is not afraid to seek the Lord and to tell Him all

Micah Shows The Desperate Need For The Messiah - Micah - 4:9-5:6 part one

As we begin let’s take a moment to follow Micah’s flow of thought starting back in Micah 4:9. Micah has been giving judgment oracles against Zion and then following each of them up with a glimpse into how the Lord will redeem them from these situations. Micah begins by saying, “Now why do you cry aloud? Is there no king in you? Has your counselor perished, that pain seized you like a woman in labor?

Accessing Grace By Faith - Micah 4:8-13

Micah 4:1-8 was a text that revealed so much grace. Virtually every line of that text contained expressions of grace. I narrowed down what we discussed last week into five expressions of grace. They were as follows: God’s promises provide grace. God promised that these things would happen so we are to know that they will occur because of the grace of God. They will not occur because God stumbles upon the right people with the right talents or abilities to bring these things about. Grace is also seen in the fact that it is the Lord who will assemble, gather, make a remnant and reign over them. It is the Lord who calls and gathers His people. Grace is seen in who the Lord saves. He saves the l

Micah 4:1-8 - Micah prophecies of a time of great grace

Text: Micah 4:1-8 Edmund Hillary and Mr. Tenzing were the first men to reach the top of Mount Everest. Hillary, who had climbed many mountains said something that has become one of his more famous quotes, “I will come again and conquer you because as a mountain you can’t grow, but as a human I can.” I can appreciate Mr. Hillary’s words in view of what he was attempting to accomplish. Climbing Mount Everest would be difficult enough under normal conditions; but it would be hopeless, impassable and insurmountable if at the same time you were attempting to scale its cliffs to reach the top, you discovered that the mountain itself was growing taller. In Micah 4:1-8 we see by the use of figurativ
