“But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, too little to be among the clams of Judah, from you One will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, from the days of eternity. And He will arise and shepherd His flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD His GOD. And they will remain, because at that time He will be great to the ends of the earth. [5a]This One will be our peace.” – Micah 5
Micah is prophesying about One who will come who will be a king who will bring PEACE. This shepherd king will bring GOD’s PEACE to all people who believe.
On Christmas Day JESUS was born. JESUS is the One Micah spoke about. At times our lives may feel hectic and out of control and anything but peaceful and secure. Today, we are reminded that we have an eternal security in and through JESUS, the Messiah, and the Promised One.
Celebrate this greatest gift of all . . . eternal security . . . everlasting PEACE!
