Matthew chapter 2 records how the Magi, or the wise men, followed a star to Jerusalem looking for the messiah so as to pay him tribute.
These men saw a Star. The star led them. But on getting to Jerusalem, they stopped following the star that had led them and resorted to asking men for direction.
If they had stuck with following the star in the first place, the star would have comfortably led them to where the messiah was. Or do you think that the star that had led them all the way from the east was no longer capable of leading them to the exact location?
It resulted in Herod becoming aware of what was going on. You know the rest of the story.
How You Might Be Making the Same Mistakes
When God gives you a vision or makes a promise to you, He is capable of bringing it to pass without any razzmatazz on your part. You don’t need to look for ways to assist him. Just go ahead and follow His direction and keep trying to align to His time-table.
If God has asked you to look for a job or start a business, you don’t need to start selling yourself short so as to get a job or start bribing your way so as to succeed in the business
The same God who gave you the vision in the first place can lead you to the best end.
God is Not Slow
Hundreds of the times I have felt that God was too slow in bringing His promise to pass in my life. I guess we all make this mistake several times in our life journey.
But hear this today. God is not slow. You have need of patience so that after you have done the will of God, you might receive the promise- Hebrews 10:36
God is working out things in your life even though you don’t feel He is at the moment.
Pray This Prayer
Dear Lord, I accept your word for my life today.
I believe you are at work.
Every form of faithlessness I have shown in your promise, Lord forgive me.
Holy Spirit, help me to keep believing and never give up.
Thank You Lord for answering my prayers.
