The Guiding Light


"...The star they (the wise men) had seen
when they were in the east went ahead of them.
It finally stopped over the place where the child was.
When they saw the star, they were filled with joy."

Matthew 2:9,10

A light shows us what is in the darkness. We can use a light to point others in the right direction. A guiding light shines before us to light our way.


God used a star to guide the wise men to the baby Jesus. When they found Him, their hearts were filled with joy. God uses His Word and the Holy Spirit as the guiding light to show us the way to Jesus.

Heavenly Father,
Just like the wise men needed a light to find the baby Jesus, I need Your light to guide me. Reading Your Word and listening to Your Holy Spirit speak to my heart will light my way. Thank You for sending Jesus to give me joy!


Amen
