Micah 7:8 (CSB) Do not rejoice over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will stand up; though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light.
Beloved, in the moments you feel down, remember that you will most assuredly rise again. And as the darkness seems to overwhelm, remember My daylight always comes. For I AM YHVH El-Ashiyb – the Lord God Restorer, and I bring forth life from death. Behold, I make all things new.
Rest in Me. Trust that no matter how dark and dismal things may seem, I AM with you and I AM moving. For I AM the God of the impossible, for with Me nothing is impossible. You are an overcomer, beloved. So stand strong in Me.
Micah 6:8 (ESV) He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Beloved, choose daily how you will live. Be known for being a person who is just and walks uprightly. Be kind and walk in humility. Refuse to be waylaid by worldly thinking, for the world’s view is in opposition to My Kingdom. So pursue righteousness. Know My Word that you might understand what true righteousness is.

So extend grace to yourself, even as I extend grace to you. Keep your heart tender and stay yielded to My leading. Seek to know Me more each day, and do so from a heart of joy, overflowing with love as one who knows how precious they are and how much was sacrificed to set them free. Obey in love from that place.
