God is committed to getting you to your destiny—His light still shines.
The magi were wealthy scholars who saw something in the heavens that others didn’t notice. Astronomers have speculated. Was it a supernova? Was it a rare planetary alignment? Was it a star that appeared out of nowhere that only students of the skies would have noticed?
Whatever it was, the magi saw what others didn’t see because they were looking. Their journey to Christ started because of what the learned men had observed. But, when they came to Bethlehem, they needed much more than skill in observing astronomical anomalies—they needed direct guidance. So do we.
Receive today’s blessing grounded in Matthew 2:9-10:
* * *
There weren’t just three of them.
And they probably didn’t ride camels.
No, the magi probably thundered into Jerusalem
As an entourage galloping on Arabian steeds.
They had seen what others hadn’t.
By His grace, you can too.
May God likewise give you eyes to see the extraordinary.
Then, when they had no other way of knowing,
The star went before them, guiding them.
God wants to get you to your destiny as well.
The star of His grace shines for you today.
I bless your spiritual eyes to see God’s direction
In Christ, you’ll always have light for your path.

And that’s the Gospel!
