Devotional For December 20, 2023

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭2‬:‭10‬

The journey of the wise men following the star to find the newborn King is a powerful narrative of seeking and discovering the presence of God. In Matthew 2:10, we witness the culmination of their quest – as they beheld the star, their hearts overflowed with exceeding joy.

In our own lives, we seek purpose, meaning, and a deeper connection with God. Just as the wise men found joy in the revelation of the star, we too can experience joy when we recognize the signs of God’s guidance in our lives. The star can serve as a metaphor for God’s light leading us through the darkness, guiding us to the source of true joy.

As you endure the uncertainties of life, pay attention to the signs of God’s presence – the light that illuminates your path. Just like the wise men, rejoice with exceedingly great joy as you discover the One who is the source of all joy, Jesus Christ.


Lord, open my eyes to the signs of Your guidance. May I find joy in the journey of seeking You and discovering Your presence. Illuminate my path with Your light and lead me to the source of true and lasting joy, Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ name, amen.
