What does the Lord require?

What does the Lord require?

Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly, Have Faith

He has shown you O mortal, what is good. And what does the lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.  
                                                                                          Micah 6:8 (NIV)

     6If you bow low in God’s awesome presence, he will eventually exalt you as you leave the timing in his hands.
     7 Pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you.
     8 Be well balanced and always alert, because your enemy,the devil, roams around incessantly, like a roaring lion looking for its prey to devour Take a decisive stand against him and resist his every attack with strong, vigorous faith. For you know that your believing brothers and sisters around the world are experiencing the same kinds of troubles you endure 10 And then, after your brief suffering, the God of all loving grace, who has called you to share in his eternal glory in Christ, will personally and powerfully restore you and make you stronger than ever. Yes, he will set you firmly in place and build you up. 11 And he has all the power needed to do this – forever! Amen.
                                                                                                       1 Peter 5:6-11 (TPT)

Selah: gives us an opportunity to take a moment away from this crazy, busy, non-stop life we all tend to live and consider the immense mysteries and wonders of God.                                                                                                    https://www.crosswalk.com/faith/bible-study/what-does-selah-mean.html
