They Saw the Light - Prophets 2

Come into my heart
Come into my heart
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus
Come into today
Come in to stay
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. 

The prophets saw the light.  One of my favorite prophetic revelations of the coming Messiah is recorded in Micah.

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
      Though you are little among the thousands of Judah,
      Yet out of you shall come forth to Me
      The One to be Ruler in Israel,
      Whose goings forth are from of old,
      From everlasting. 
Therefore He shall give them up,
      Until the time that she who is in labor has given birth;
      Then the remnant of His brethren
      Shall return to the children of Israel.
       And He shall stand and feed His flock
      In the strength of the LORD,
      In the majesty of the name of the LORD His God;
      And they shall abide,
      For now He shall be great
      To the ends of the earth;
       And this One shall be peace" (Micah 5:2-5a)

This is the nature of our Lord.  In Bethlehem, a place known for its lower class of people (mostly shepherds), God brings forth the most precious of all gifts. We would expect a king to be birthed in a palace.  Instead He is introduced to the world to a gathering of shepherds.  

The Lord would speak to you today.  He declares that He comes to you.  He comes where you are - even if you consider that place insignificant or unworthy of such a visit.  He invades your world with His peace and light.  He restores and strengthens who you are - as designed by Him.  He is indeed the Lord and Ruler of your life.  He is Your peace!
