Discussion for Micah 7:7

  • Brianna for verse 7
    This scripture shows me to have patience on my part. Sometimes you want to move ahead and make decisions without first consulting God. A lot of times this turns out disastrous. I am continuing to make it a point to take my matters to Jehovah God in prayer, and then WAIT for his direction to act.
