It's Time To Let Go!

Micah 2

New International Version (NIV)

Human Plans and God’s Plans

Woe to those who plan iniquity,
    to those who plot evil on their beds!
At morning’s light they carry it out
    because it is in their power to do it.
They covet fields and seize them,
    and houses, and take them.
They defraud people of their homes,
    they rob them of their inheritance.
Therefore, the Lord says:
“I am planning disaster against this people,
    from which you cannot save yourselves.
You will no longer walk proudly,
    for it will be a time of calamity.
In that day people will ridicule you;
    they will taunt you with this mournful song:
‘We are utterly ruined;
    my people’s possession is divided up.
He takes it from me!
    He assigns our fields to traitors.’”
Therefore you will have no one in the assembly of the Lord
    to divide the land by lot.

Today's text is from the prophet Micah, who reminds us to not be hateful or bitter towards one another, we must remember vengeance and revenge is not for us to take into our own hands. Indeed we have a protector in God.

Dear God today help us to let go of old stuff and heavy baggage from the past to live in the present serving you. Amen.
