Good morning people who see spiritual realities packaged naturally
Matthew 2:1-2 NKJV Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”
I love this language.
There was a natural sign that revealed a spiritual reality.
It had been prophetically spoken about and the wise men had the spiritual perception to recognise it.
On the day that Jesus was born, a star pointed to a Saviour!
There are natural signs and markers in our lives too that testify about a spiritual reality.
Sometimes we miss seeing the evidence of God in our reality because we only see ‘a star’; we only see our natural reality.
The wise men saw countless stars on a daily basis. Yet they recognised ‘His star’.
How was this possible?
They received spiritual revelation because they were looking to see.
Sometimes we don’t see the spiritual in the natural because we are not looking to see; we are not leaning in with expectation.
God responds to spiritual hunger – He always has and He always will.
The wise men were spiritually hungry.
