Micah 7:7
Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus

The well-known carol Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus was written by Charles Wesley after a mission trip to America where he witnessed abusive slavery. He was so shaken by the situation in the U.S. that he almost had a nervous breakdown. If you were to read all of Micah 7, you will find the prophet Micah in a similar situation. In 7:7 there is an anchor to which one can hold. As believers in Jesus Christ, we watch expectantly for what God has in store for us. Take a moment and pray, thanking the Lord for that which is to come.
