You Speak Through Even the Stars

Psalm 44:5
Only by your power can we push back our enemies;
only in your name can we trample our foes.
Psalm 44:5

Romans 1:16 (NIV)
I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
Romans 1:16 (NIV)

Matthew 2:1-2
Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the reign of King Herod. About that time some wise men from eastern lands arrived in Jerusalem, asking, "Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him."

Lord, you use even the stars to proclaim your message. The magi recognized the message proclaimed there and it caused them to seek out the newborn king of the Jews. It even caused them to want to worship him. It had to be a powerful message to cause magi to want to travel so far to worship a child!

Lord, your message is still powerful! It is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes. (Romans 1:16) May people see you in me and hear your message from me so that they will desire to worship the same person the wise men traveled to worship: Jesus Christ!

Psalm 19:1
The Heavens tell of the glory of God. The skies display his marvelous craftsmanship.
