What Do You See?

The Lord asked Amos multiple times, ‘What do you see?’ and then He would explain. Micah 6:6 says, “With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before the High God?…” Then he asked about several things.

Verse 8 says, “He has SHOWN you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord the require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?”

The point the Lord was making through His prophet Micah was that it was not their external offerings that pleased Him. When the Lord has our heart, then we will do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly before Him.

Micah 7:18 says, “Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy.”

When we ‘see’ what the Lord requires of us and walk in it, then others will ‘see’ Him through us. Authentic followers of Jesus forgive those who hurt them, who despitefully use them, and who are unjust.

Nahum 2:1 is our stance to help us diligently guard our heart. It says, “He who scatters has come up before your face. Man the fort! Watch the road! Strengthen your flanks! Fortify your power mightily.” Remember Proverbs 18:10 says, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteousness run to it and are safe.”
