WHAT MISERY IS MINE!
Micah grieves over the corruption of the society in which he lived. Violence, dishonesty and immorality were practiced freely among the people of Israel. Few people were really godly (Verse 2), and family love had nearly disappeared (Verse 6). If we are truly devoted to God and His purposes, we will also grieve over the evil and ungodliness we see around us. It should cause us to pray more earnestly for our nation and for those we know who do not have a personal relationship with God. We must plead for the Lord to do whatever it takes to bring them to Him (Verse 7-9) and to use us in the process.
I WATCH IN HOPE FOR THE LORD.
When surrounded by a morally sick and spiritually lost society, Micah put his faith in God and trusted Him to fulfill His promises. Micah knew that God would take care of him personally and would one day carry out justice against all evil and reveal everything that is right (Verse 9).
I WILL RISE.
Those who remained faithful to God would face difficult days ahead because of God's judgment for the nation's sins. However, Micah boldly expressed a faith that looked beyond the temporary triumph of their enemies to the time when God would restore the nation to its highest glory. "I will rise" is a statement of faith that is similar to Job's statement in the middle of his suffering (Job 19:25-27).
SHEPHERD YOUR PEOPLE.
These verses are a prayer of supplication(a humble plea or request), asking God to fulfill the words of Verse 8-13. Micah's main concern was that God - as the great Shepherd - would once again lead, guide and take care of Israel.
