God Will Bring You Back

Micah 5:6–15 (NKJV)

6 They shall waste with the sword the land of Assyria,

And the land of Nimrod at its entrances;

Thus He shall deliver us from the Assyrian,

When he comes into our land

And when he treads within our borders.

7 Then the remnant of Jacob

Shall be in the midst of many peoples,

Like dew from the Lord,

Like showers on the grass,

That tarry for no man

Nor wait for the sons of men.

8 And the remnant of Jacob

Shall be among the Gentiles,

In the midst of many peoples,

Like a lion among the beasts of the forest,

Like a young lion among flocks of sheep,

Who, if he passes through,

Both treads down and tears in pieces,

And none can deliver.

9 Your hand shall be lifted against your adversaries,

And all your enemies shall be cut off.

10 “And it shall be in that day,” says the Lord,

“That I will cut off your horses from your midst

And destroy your chariots.

11 I will cut off the cities of your land

And throw down all your strongholds.

12 I will cut off sorceries from your hand,

And you shall have no soothsayers.

13 Your carved images I will also cut off,

And your sacred pillars from your midst;

You shall no more worship the work of your hands;

14 I will pluck your wooden images from your midst;

Thus I will destroy your cities.

15 And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury

On the nations that have not heard.”

In this very explicit description, God uses Micah to show Israel how they will be restored.  Assyria will be the instrument of God’s judgment on His people, but then they will be the instrument of God’s judgment on Assyria.  This story helps each of the readers to understand that although our actions may cost us certain consequences, the grace of God will bring us back to the place of being blessed if we repent and trust Him.  Don’t let the loss of your status cause you to not believe that God can bring it back.
