Micah 7: 2, 7: “The godly person has perished from the land, and there is no upright person among men. All of them wait for bloodshed; each of them hunts the other with a net … But as for me, I will wait expectantly for the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me.” Today’s Daily Office reading, a litany of social decay and depravity, might as well have been written in the twenty-first century A.D. rather than the seventh B.C. Poverty, violence, greed, immorality, and rebellion jump off the page. But in the midst of it all Micah expresses the hope of a man who knows His God. Twenty-seven centuries later, the Lord is still on the throne. Watch, wait … and He will hear!
