A CELEBRATED STAR
“When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.” (Matthew 2: 9)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
Jesus’ star didn’t appear in Jerusalem where Herod was. It appeared to the wise men who followed it until they came to where Jesus was. Herod was unhappy about the birth of a new King; he was not about to celebrate Jesus.
The wise men were interested in Jesus and came with gifts to celebrate Him. So the star did not appear where it would not be celebrated; it appeared where it would be celebrated.
Friend, God says, your star will appear where you will be celebrated. Your star will appear to people who would value you and treat you according to your worth. The star in you will be recognized by people who will respect and honour you and give you what you deserve. Men will recognize your abilities and give you massive rewards. Men will see your true worth and place you where you deserve. God will unveil your star to the right people.
God will open the eyes of the right people to see the star in you and treat you with honour and splendor. You may not know how to tell everyone that you are a star, but God will tell those who need to know so that they can recognize and place you where you belong.
Some haters will never recognize your star no matter how brightly you shine. Your haters may even outnumber your cheer leaders. If they are unwilling to see and celebrate the star in you, move on, there are people who are willing to recognize and celebrate you. Jesus’ star refused to appear to Herod, so don’t appear before haters who don’t value you.
Know who you are. Know what you want. Know what you are worth. Don’t accept anything less. You are the best.
Pray With Me: Lord, open the eyes of people to see the star in me, in Jesus’ name!
