Advent 2020 Day 2
But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days. Micah 5:2
A ruler was to be born in Bethlehem. Micah prophesied that it would happen 700+ years before Jesus was born. He wouldn’t come from the most significant city, but that which is insignificant. God doesn’t need the strongest hand but the weakest heart to accomplish His will. From the humblest beginnings God does the most honorable things. A ruler would come from Bethlehem and He would be the ruler of all creation. He would be God, the ancient of days, and He would be born in Bethlehem, the city of David. God can begin His work in the smallest and weakest of places. That’s why it only takes a small decision to see the biggest demonstration of God’s passion and power. Christ comes to the humblest places to do the honorable work. Remember that and just start with believing Him.
