We have seen his star.

by | Dec 20, 2017

“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod, the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.” (Matthew 2:1-2) KJV
The Christmas story is not complete without the story of the three wise men that came to worship the Savior when HE was still a baby.
Real wise men and wise women today still seek Jesus.
They did not just stumble on the baby Jesus. They saw the star and followed for over 800 miles to get to the exact place.
To be wise like these men, we must follow the Holy Spirit who knows and sees all things, and He will lead us not just to our destination but also actually to fulfill our God-given destiny.
Sometimes we do make mistakes in following “correct protocol  ” as the wise men did by taking their eyes off the star and asking Herod who had no solution to their problem but only added persecution.
The wise men quickly regained their bearing by looking up to the star that eventually led them to the Savior.  Repent and refocus your attention on the Holy Spirit today to guide you to your destiny rather than being trapped by the Herod’s you are seeking directions.
Wise men are lovers of God hence they willingly, voluntarily and cheerfully gave their gifts.
When you are in a loving relationship with God, there is neither controversy nor debate about your giving to God because it indeed comes from your heart and not as a show to man.
“ Thank God! Call out his Name!  Tell the whole world who he is and what he’s done!
Sing to him! Play songs for him! Broadcast all his wonders! Revel in his holy Name,
 God-seekers, be jubilant! Study God and his strength, seek his presence day and night; Remember all the wonders he performed, the miracles and judgments that came out of his mouth…” (1 Chronicles 16:8-11) MSG

Being wise is to seek Jesus continually. Wise men and Wise women too still search and find Him.
