We meet the Wise Men early in Matthew and see that they connect with Jesus in person quite some time after that. Their story is simple, but it is one of my favorites. These men were wise; their opinions were valued; their abilities commissioned; their treasures desired. Yet they followed a moving star, only seen at night, on a journey of discovery to the King of Kings.Read More
Simeon obeyed the prompting by the Lord’s Spirit in something as mundane as where to go and when to go, and in those small steps he encountered the Presence of Jesus face to face.

Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.” After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.
God just knows that women need each other for the highs and lows that make up the journey of life—and relationships that produce revelation of Him are the absolute best.
