After this interview the wise men went their way. And the star they had seen in the east guided them to Bethlehem. It went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the child was.
Good Morning Jesus,
My heart this morning is so full of Your presence and I woke with You as my first thought. I look forward to what You will say to me each day and again You blessed me with this scripture.
As You guided the Israelites after the exodus with a cloud of smoke during the day and a pillar of fire at night, You also directed the wise men with the star. You gave them a sign and they followed. You were very direct in showing them the way.
I know, Jesus, that You show me the way so many times. You nudge me back when I stray, Your light shines where I am to go and yet, there are times I am still so blind. I either don’t notice or don’t care.
Please forgive me, Jesus. Help me to use my spiritual eyes and not only see where You are leading me, but also the courage and strength to follow. Like Your people of old, they didn’t need to know where they were going, they just knew You were leading them. They were okay with all the unknowns and what ifs. I want to be like them, to obey Your leading with joy and excitement.
I thank You my Jesus, for being so gentle and patient with me. I love You!
One thought on “Matthew 2:9”
A very interesting prayer this morning, the wise men and the star connecting with the Israelites and the cloud. Then to put that with God leading us, and how easy we can all stray if we don’t keep God in our hearts. It a thought for me to dwell on today! Thank you!
