Wise Men Still Seek Him (Joel Osteen)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE
“The fear of the   LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is   understanding”
(Proverbs 9:10, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
After Jesus was born, the   Bible tells us in Matthew chapter two that Wise Men came from the East to bow   before Him and worship Him. They went to great lengths just to get a glimpse   of the Child and traveled a long distance for many months, following the star.   When they saw Him, they were so overwhelmed. The scripture says they fell on   their faces to honor and worship Him.

The fear of the Lord is the   beginning of wisdom. That means that we should have a reverential honor and   respect for Him — just like the Wise Men did. We are wise when we set   everything else in life aside in order to seek Him. We are wise when we   worship Him and give Him everything that we are. We are wise when we take   time to honor Him. Remember, God is a rewarder of the people who diligently   seek after Him. As you continue to put Him first in all you do, you’ll   increase in wisdom and discernment, and you’ll move forward into the life of   blessing He has in store for you.

A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father in heaven,   today I choose wisdom by choosing to honor You. I put You first in my heart,   my mind, my emotions and my actions. Show me Your ways that I may walk with   You and acknowledge You in everything I do in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel &   Victoria Osteen
