What God Wants
(Micah 6 – 7)
By Thomas Blackshear II
What does it take to please the Lord?
The Old Testament minor prophet Micah penned a single verse that sums up a deep desire of the God, regarding His children. Although we may ponder the will of the Lord and question our own convictions, this short passage succinctly summarizes how we may honor Jehovah most.
“He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.”
How has God spoken to you through His Word today? Has He impressed this verse upon your heart? Has the Lord inspired you to memorize Micah 6:8?
Here’s a simple acrostic the Lord gave me today, based upon Micah 6:8.
The Power of One –
Key to Pleasing God
Trying to scale
Heaven’s heights alone
Escapes every mortal man.
Eyes, opened wide to
Reflect His unfathomable grace.
Omniscient and sure, the
Father sees all.
Out of love for God and others,
Needing His mercy ourselves
Each may please the Lord.
Will you pray with me?
We desire to please You.
Thank You for Your Word,
Which clearly points out
The simplicity of Your desire
For justice and mercy,
Even as You are just
We adore You.Amen.
