Micah 5:2-3. “But you, Bethlehem, David’s country, the runt of the litter— From you will come the leader who will shepherd-rule Israel. He’ll be no upstart, no pretender. His family tree is ancient and distinguished. Meanwhile, Israel will be in foster homes until the birth pangs are over and the child is born, And the scattered brothers come back home to the family of Israel.”
My children like to chant “the first shall be the last and the last shall be the first” as they compete in everything. People didn’t think much of Bethlehem, but God did and that’s what mattered.
In your own life; people may have over looked you, you might think little of yourself, you might down play your gifts and talents, but God sees the successes of all the amazing potential He put in you. It really is a matter of perspective. Would you be like everyone else and accept what they say about you, what you believe about you? Or are you going to stand out in history because you took God at His Word? Remember the first shall be the last and the last shall be the first.

In what ways can you demonstrate your faith in God’s word today?
Dear Lord, Stop my ears up if that’s what it takes for me to hear You speak to me. Your report is the only one that counts. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
