I don’t know about you but I like to have things in order. I like direction and all my ducks in a row. When we seek Jesus and choose to follow him our plans are no longer ours. They are God’s plans. Just look at the Magi. Many refer to them as the Wiseman who brought Jesus gifts. Bible scholars believe that Jesus was one or two years old when the magi finally found him. That means that they had traveled from the time he was born for a year or two in order to find him and bring him costly gifts. When they found him they worshipped him. After finally finding him and worshiping him they were warned by God NOT to return through Jerusalem as they intended. Finding Jesus meant they had to take a new direction. Like the magi, finding Jesus may mean that our lives also must take a different direction. Finding Jesus leads to a new life…one that is responsive and obedient to God’s word. Trust Him when he leads you down a new path. He has plans for you and he knows exactly what he is doing.

Have a SIMPLY BLESSED day.
