Trust Him for The Promise

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh. (Matthew 2:12)

The three Kings (three wise men) were fearless.  They stepped out in faith, and with the promise of the prophecy they followed the star and…they encountered heaven.

“They fell down and worshipped him.”

These distinguished, wealthy, and educated men fell down at the feet of a young child and worshipped him.

Their expectations were exceeded beyond anything they could have dreamed of.

The sacrifices of comfort, the lengthy separation from home, running from King Herod…in an instant it was all worth it.

They were able to worship the Savior of the world.

Courage in our journey and pursuit of God can be a hard thing.

But, if we truly long for an encounter with Jesus, He will always exceed our expectations.

If we take the leap of faith and with trust and abandonment say – “your will not mine”, we can experience a glimpse of heaven.

This devotion blessed me. What truth! He will always exceed our expectations no matter what the outcome looks like, amen. I am reminded of Isaiah 55:8-9, For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Trust Him for the promise.

Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
