Going home a different way

Daily reading: Matthew 2:1-12
Saturday January 9, 2016

Focus passage: Because they were warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they went back to their own country by another route. Matthew 2:12

The scripture says that the Magi received another vision that they were not to return to Herod.  You see the beauty is that they were open to further revelation from God and they recognized that they had not arrived at a completion in their faith walk, so they packed up and returned home.  But not in the way they came, they went home by another way, reminding us that when we have an authentic experience of meeting God, we are forever changed, you no longer travel the same way again.

Prayer: God of epiphanies and a-ha moments, open my eyes to your presence today.  Amen.
