How To Rise Above The Drama & Live For God

How To Rise Above The Drama & Live For God

Do you get discouraged by the craziness in the world? These simple but powerful truths will help you rise above it all and live for God.

Micah was a Judean prophet from the Southwest of Israel. He prophesied during the reigns of three kings – Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah.

Jotham was a good king, but did not remove the idolatrous high places.

Ahaz was a wicked king with a pro-Assyrian foreign policy. The Northern Kingdom was taken captive during his reign.

Hezekiah was a good king for most of his reign. His anti-Assyrian policies led to the siege of Jerusalem by Sennacherib.

Those were difficult days for the common people in Judea. They were harassed by the enemy, exploited by the rich (2:1-13), taken advantage of by their rulers (3:1-4), and distracted by the message of false prophets (3:5-8).

The key verse in this book is Micah 6:8.​

Micah 6:8  “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; And what doth the Lord require of thee, But to do justly, and to love mercy, And to walk humbly with thy God?”

There were many reasons for the people of God to be discouraged, angry, depressed. Micah was encouraging the people to rise above the drama of the day.

Matthew 5:23-24  “Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;  [24]  Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.”
