To be guided is often appreciated long after it happens. Guidance can come in the form of gentle encouragement or loud warnings. However it comes to us, most likely we find ourselves thanking the one who provided it for our safety or for leading us toward our life purpose.
Coaches are in the business of guiding young men and women toward immediate or long-term goals. Directives given to the team and individual players are meant to lead to a positive end of season. Pouring out their gifts of game knowledge, experience and commitment, coaches take the long trek of molding a team into all they can be.
God revealed his GLORIOUS GUIDANCE by setting a very bright star in the heavens. This Star of Bethlehem led three very wise kings on a long journey to the promised Christ child. Pouring out their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh they bowed to worship this long-awaited gift from heaven!
“... And the star they had seen in the east guided them to Bethlehem. It went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were filled with joy!” Matthew 2:9-10 NLT
We too can be led by a bright star of stars set within us...the Holy Spirit. Christ’s birth and death put this in motion providing mankind with God’s GLORIOUS GUIDANCE. A bright hope, encouraging us toward what we were designed to be and do is available to those who believe in the Christ child as God’s son and our Savior. This is what Jesus said...
“But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.” John 14:26 NLT
PRAYER: Thank you for your GLORIOUS GUIDANCE today. Your Holy Spirit lights up my life from within pointing the way you have planned for me. Just as the Star of Bethlehem led the Wise Men, I will look to your promised Holy Spirit to lead me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
LET THE STAR OF STARS LEAD YOU!
