Position yourself for the miracle
Matthew 2:9-10 (MSG)
“Instructed by the king, they set off. Then the star appeared again, the same star they had seen in the eastern skies. It led them on until it hovered over the place of the child. They could hardly contain themselves: They were in the right place! They had arrived at the right time!”
The Magi did not stumble upon the baby Jesus. It was a God ordained journey that was divinely orchestrated. All they did was position themselves by following God’s sign.
They were led by the star, which brought them right to the house in Bethlehem where Jesus was. No wonder they fell down and worshiped Him. Picture it: seeing your Messiah face to face.
Likewise, it was no coincidence when you found your Saviour. You might think you stumbled upon Him, but He also led you by His star. He purposely and deliberately met you. From the foundation of the world He chose you.
He is also leading you to your next miracle. Maybe it is your family salvation, a turnaround in your finances, the healing of your body or the mending of a relationship? He is setting you up for His glory, bringing all the pieces together.
So if you can hardly contain yourself, don’t manipulate, scheme or try to make it happen. ‘God says, “These things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair. These things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!” Habakkuk 2:3 (TLB)
If you are following God’s leading you are in the right place and you will arrive at precisely the right time just as the Magi did.
