Do you need a miracle in your life? If God suddenly showed up, what would you ask him to do for you?
Well, I can't think of a better time for a miracle than Christmas! Let me show
you something from Matthew 2:1-12—a passage of Scripture that's very familiar
to all of us during the holiday season.
"Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem . . . behold, there came wise men from the
east to Jerusalem, saying, "Where is He that is born King of the Jews? For we
have seen his star in the east, and have come to worship Him . . . "
Notice, the wise men had come to worship. The wisest thing we can do to prepare
for our miracle is to WORSHIP JESUS.
But when King Herod heard about the newborn King, he immediately began making
plans to kill Jesus. Why? Because the devil knows that the birth of Jesus is the
beginning of all the miracles God will do in your life. But the good news is: if
the devil couldn't stop the first miracle; he won't be able to stop the NEXT ONE
either! Just as God showed up at just the right time when Jesus was born, He is
about to show up on time in your life and situation! Lets see how:
"And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his
mother, and fell down, and worshiped him; and when they had opened their
treasures, they presented unto him gifts: gold and frankincense and myrrh."
Notice, they opened up their TREASURES. Matthew 6:19 says that "where our
treasure is, there is our heart also". So when they opened up their treasures,
they were really opening up their hearts! By doing so, they were demonstrating
for us what real worship is: it is opening up your heart and giving to God our
most valued gifts. The great tradition of Giving at Christmas began right here:
God gives the gift of His Son, and in return, we give what we have, to show
that we value Him much more than our own treasures, money and possessions. Our
love and worship should always be accompanied with a gift.
Then look at what happens next—in the very next verse—after they worship
Jesus and give Him their gifts:
Now I want you to notice that on the same night the Wise Men worshiped Jesus and
presented precious gifts to Him, God interrupted their plans to return to Herod
and saved their lives!
And being warned by God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they
departed into their own country another way. Matthew 2:12
What an amazing miracle! God shows up, and warns them in a dream THAT NIGHT—not
to go back to Herod. Herod's plan was to kill Jesus and kill them, but God
This is the kind of interrupted sleep that I wouldn't mind! God interrupts their
plans and saves their lives. He interrupts the enemy's plan, and gives these men
a way out.
This Christmas I want to help give you the opportunity to experience God's
divine interruption in your life. Do you need Him to show up in your life today?
Are you ready for your miracle?
First, I want you to think about the situations in your life that you want God
to "interrupt". Perhaps He needs to interrupt a sickness in your life, a debt
you can't pay, or a problem in your marriage, family or children. Whatever is
concerning you—whatever pressure is against you—God is about to show up and
interrupt the devil's plan.
Second, I want you to think about opening your treasures and giving the Lord a
precious gift—a precious gift that will honor our Savior.
Third, I want you to begin expecting God to interrupt your life with the miracle
that you need.
With your gift of any amount to the work of the gospel, I want to send you this
teaching that has inspired significant miracles in my life, and the lives of so
many who have heard it.
