“As for me, I look to the Lord for help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me. Do not gloat over me, my enemies! For though I fall, I will rise again. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light. I will be patient as the Lord punishes me, for I have sinned against him. But after that, he will take up my case and give me justice for all I have suffered from my enemies. The Lord will bring me into the light, and I will see his righteousness.” (Micah 7:7-9 NLT)
Sin is serious. Sin has consequences. When we sin we bring pain upon ourselves. And sometimes God disciplines us.
But the good news is that He disciplines those He loves. And when we repent, He forgives.
God wants what’s best for us. He loves us. Like Micah, Believers can be confident that God is on our side.
