“…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.
The star of Jesus moved until it came and stood where Jesus was. The star was not static; it was a moving star. It was not a stagnant star; it was a star that made movements; it was a star that did not remain in the same position; it was a star that was in motion and kept moving.
Friend, God says, after you become a star, keep moving. Be a moving star; be a star that isn’t stagnated; be a star that keeps improving; be a star that gets better and better; be a dynamic star; be a star that won’t be at the same spot and same level from day to day and from year to year. Be a star that shines brighter and brighter each passing day.
If Jesus’ star kept moving, then you have no business being stagnant. Jesus’ example is one that has no business with stagnation. If you are stagnant in your work, you are not following Jesus’ example. If you remain on the same level, you are missing the mark.
If people cannot see anything new in you as you grow older, you are walking in stagnation. If where you were yesterday is same as where you are today, stagnation is at your doorstep.
Even when your physical location has not changed, something in you should be seen to change. Your skills should be seen to improve; your competence and dedication should be seen to increase; your relevance should be seen to grow. Even when you are confined in your environment, manifest a new thing.
The movement of Jesus’ star was not hidden. People saw the star moving. If indeed you are moving, your movement should be recognizable. Keep moving; even when you make progress, keep moving; no matter what you attain, keep moving.
Pray With Me: Lord, I must keep moving, in Jesus’ name!
