"I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me." NIV
"I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me." KJV
The lowly shepherds kept the hope of the Messiah in their hearts. The Magi were diligent in their desire to see the promised Saviour. Their station in life was of no consideration to God who promises that anyone who loves and desires to find Him will find Him. We may not see multitudes of angels overhead or a bright star shining in the sky, but if we truly love Him and seek Him, He will see that we find Him. Our God is faithful and wants all of us to seek Him.
Heavenly Father, how wonderful was the event at a small cattle stall where the Saviour of the world was born. Those who diligently awaited His coming were privileged to be led there to that humble place. Help us to remember how much You love us, that You put the desire in our hearts to seek You and You make sure we find You. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
