1 Samuel 12:20 – Then Samuel said to the people, “Do not fear. You have done all this wickedness; yet do not turn aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart.” 

Believe it or not, you can be loyal to King Jesus in the midst of your sin. When all hell is breaking loose is your life, don’t walk off the blessed reservation because you think you’ve gone too far. Like King David, repent and run to your Father in heaven. Serve Him in hard places and He will reward your loyalty. 

Declaration: I will not fall out or lose focus. Even in the midst of my sin, I will be loyal to Jesus and stay on His team. 

Of Old, From Everlasting…

Jesus was God Almighty in flesh form. My how the angels must have been amazed! To know the ultimate God of the universe, then see Him do something as audacious as to become a tiny baby in a teenager’s womb. That must have blown their minds. 

Well, that’s what I want to do today – blow your mind. Usually, when we read this amazing prophecy, we focus on Bethlehem, the place Jesus would be born. I want to show you something else today – something hidden right in front of us. 

“But you Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” – Micah 5:2

Isn’t it interesting that there are two different timelines? “From old,” which is a natural timeline, and “everlasting,” which is a supernatural timeline. The prophet is saying the Messiah going to be natural and supernatural at the same exact time.

He’s also talking about eternity versus time. The Word who created time and space would make Himself subject to time and space. Eternity came into time and it was a game-changer because it also made eternity possible again for man. 

Do you see it? My how the angels marveled at the wisdom, the sacrifice and the sheer beauty of the creator redeeming His fallen creation. Are you fallen today? Is there an area of your life that needs a heavenly touch? Jesus is the answer from “of old, from everlasting.”
