I have to watch how I speak around Susanna these days. She’s an eager-to-learn two year old who repeats my words and actions. Oh, how nice to be admired! Likewise, I hope Father God views me with affection when I speak like Him. It’s even better when I make a decision that mirrors His holy ways. God understands that we humans long for identification. He sent Jesus!
I’m aware, too, that not everyone embraces Jesus. Some “walk” a different way, and their god is different like the woman I met on the playground the other day. I was pushing Susanna’s swing when she approached me with one of those printed handouts that look like a page from a primary reader. Soon I knew that I was speaking to a very friendly lady who was unusually interested in my life and not just selling her god to me like most in cults. Nonetheless, I’m concerned for her. I’m glad she came into my life that day. I haven’t been able to stop thinking and praying for this deceived soul. At least she was friendly and we could talk about other things and find some common ground of identification!
The Micah verse shows me that throughout time, some would identify with the name of the Lord. Count me in, Lord, forever. It has to be forever! That’s what makes this verse great.
