Text: Matthew 2 (Genesis 3-4)
As we read the story in Matthew 2 we see the wise men visit Jesus having been led by a star.
And behold, the star that they had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place where the child was. (Matthew 2:9)
We also see them told in dream that Herod was bad news and to be avoided, and we see Joseph directed to flee to Egypt then to return by the Lord speaking in dreams to him as well. How do these things speak to us today? Well, it would seem that when the Lord wants to lead things, He indeed takes the lead. He is able to guide and direct our lives in order to accomplish His will. And, if He needs to take extraordinary means, He will do just that. Do you expect the Lord to direct your life? He is able to and He will. Perhaps He has already given you direction by His Word. Maybe He will speak through a brother or sister in Christ. Maybe He will even send a messenger, an angel. No matter the medium He uses, you can expect His leadership. So… the big question is this: Are we following?
in Him, Mike
