WHAT DO YOU DESIRE?
"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." Matthew 2:1-2.
If people are not hungry, God will not give revelation. The wise men of the East were perhaps those who waited upon and pursued after God. If all we have is only dead knowledge we will be like the Pharisees. Though we may know the word of the Bible, we do not see the light in heaven. The word of the Bible indeed gave them the details about the Saviour; but the appearing of the star in heaven caused them to realize the presence of the Saviour! Both the star in heaven and the prophecy of Micah (see Micah 5:2) was necessary. The conditions for receiving God’s revelation are to wait, and to desire.
Prayer: Lord, create in me hunger and thirst for you.
