“Behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “When I will raise up for David a righteous Branch; And He will reign as king and act wisely And do justice and righteousness in the land.” Jer. 23:5
“Jesus was born in Bethlehem near Jerusalem during the reign of King Herod. After Jesus’ birth, a group of spiritual priests from the East came to Jerusalem and inquired of the people, “Where is the child who is born king of the Jewish people? We observed his star rising in the sky and we’ve come to bow before him in worship.” Matt. 2:2 TPT
“for today in the city of David, there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Lk 2:11
“For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” Jer. 29:11
You are our Savior who reigns as the King of kings, and the Lord of lords. Your never-ending love, compassion, and mercies are new every morning. You are Christ the Lord. Your plans for welfare, a future and hope are well-received. In Jesus’ name, we praise.
The wime men eagerly journeyed to Bethlehem to give a royal welcome to the baby Jesus- God’s promised gift of salvation to mankind. They packed gold, frankincense, and myrrh so they could join in the heavenly worship of the infant King.
These men formed an important part of the celebration surrounding Christ’s birth. In fact, they represented you in God’s great plan. They came to woship the Lord of lords and the King of kings, and their visit to the Christ child symbolizes the thousands of men and women who have humbly sought the Messiah through history.
Through your own seeking and serving, you become part of the heavenly symphony giving passionate praise to the Savior.
Allow your heart to burst into song at the thought of Him. Permit the tune of your being to swell with the joy of who He is. Just like the wise men, you have joined the great multitude in never-ending worship.
Seek Him and sing, for surely He is worthy.
