Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

This post is from my notes
taken at our Bible Study Sunday morning at church.
The setting is in the days of
Jonah who refused to preach to Nineveh
because in his eyes they weren’t worth saving.
The prophet Micah was
prophesying about the last days when war shall be no more, and peace shall
reign.He continued to prophesy that God
would punish Assyria because of their cruelty
and spirit of war.God would bring vengeance
upon Nimrod and cut off witchcrafts and Sooth Sayers, and tear down the graven
images, and they would no more worship the work of their hands.
Micah 4:1-4But in the last days it shall come
to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top
of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall
flow unto it.And many nations shall come, and
say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of
Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: And he shall judge among many
people, and rebuke strong nations; and they shall beat their swords into
plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a
sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his

people would humble themselves and pray, God would hear and rescue them and
God demands that we worship
Him only and the children of Israel
forgot so quickly.
Jonah went to Nineveh to preach
repentance, and the king and the people did listen and repent for a

in darkness.Our nation is full of
rebellion and wickedness.We ourselves
must be careful how we live and walk before others who watch our behavior.
God threw up his hands and
said, “Go for it.It is in your face,
and you will reap what you sow.
Micah continued in chapter 7
asking “Where are the good men?He could
only view people who did evil with both hands earnestly.They were rebellious children who dishonored
their parents and God.
It is most necessary and
foremost for us to have a relationship with our Father God.
We must consider our actions,
our pride, stubbornness, selfishness and complaining.If we want God’s blessings we must obey His
will and follow His plans for our lives.
Micah 7:7Therefore I will look
unto the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear

to allow God to guide and lead you in paths of righteousness.
Be careful who you trust in this world.Place your trust in God Almighty and in no
