HELPED BY HEROD
“2. …we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. 3. …Herod the king had heard these things… 4. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.”
(Matthew 2: 2-4)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
When the wise men saw Jesus’ star, they came to Herod in search of the new born King. They came to someone who was actually an enemy in search of important information. They came to someone who was actually Jesus’ hater in search of information on how to locate Jesus.
Herod was a hater, but he summoned the chief priests and scribes and demanded information about Jesus’ birth place. He was a hater, but he gathered useful information that was needed by the wise men. He was sad about Jesus’ birth, but he became a servant that provided information to the wise men.
Friend, God says, the Herod’s of this world will be servants in your destiny. Your haters are about to become your destiny informants. Those who prefer to work against you will soon become agents that will give you strategic information that will take you higher. The wicked men around you will turn to destiny helpers, bringing positive information that will open doors for you.
Herod may have had negative intentions when he sourced for information about Jesus’ birth place, but he worked as a servant all the same. Some haters may not be aware that their activities are about to open doors for you, but God says, they won’t stop until the doors are open. Some haters will ignorantly open doors for you to enter your next level.
Don’t lose sleep whenever you discover that what you need is in the hands of a ‘Herod’. If Jehovah is involved, the ‘Herods’ and haters of this world will be servants, working for your next level.
Pray With Me: Lord, command the ‘Herods’ of this world to work for my good, in Jesus’ name!
