Micah 2: SOAP in studying the Bible

Scripture
Micah 2:1-3 NI

[1] 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. [2] They covet fields and seize them, and houses, and take them. They defraud people of their homes, they rob them of their inheritance. [3] 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.

Observation:

• God’s heart: (gusto nya matulog tyo ng mahimbing). He wants us to sleep well at night😊. He doesn’t want us to device evil plan – He wants us to forgive. He doesn’t want us to overuse or position. In other words He wants us to care for people and help theo opress. If we go against God’s word, there is a consequence when we do this.

Application:

  • Do no device evil plan in our mind
  • Do not take what belongs to other people
  • God reminded me this verse: Romans 12:21 NIV  [21] Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Prayer:

Dear Lord, thank you that You love and care for each one. Please help me to have a loving and forgiving heart. Help me to be a light to be wherever I am and in whatever situation I am in. Thank You for this great reminder, it humbles me that I answer to You Lord and not to any human authority. That’s why I cannot hate and show partiality to people. Continue to change my heart from glory to glory in Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Additional Info about the book of Micah in the Bible: information from NIV Life Apllication Bible (kindle edition)

MICAH

PURPOSE: To warn God’s people that judgment is coming and to offer pardon to all who repent.

The Blueprint:

Micah emphasized the need for justice and peace. Like a lawyer, he set forth God’s case against Israel and Judah, their leaders, and their people. Throughout the book are prophecies about Jesus, the Messiah, who will gather the people into one nation. He will be their king and ruler, acting mercifully toward them. Micah makes it clear that God hates unkindness, idolatry, injustice, and empty ritual—and he still hates these today. But God is very willing to pardon the sins of any who repent.
