Don’t throw away your flag

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:1&2

The wise men saw the star and followed it to Jerusalem, thinking if the king of the Jews have been born, it must be in the capital city and where else but the palace. They were wrong; the son of God was born about 6miles south of Jerusalem, away from the perceived regal status of the big city. In a manger because ‘there was no room in the Inn’, what a paradox.

Stereotypically the Magi went to the centre of government, assuming nobility can only stem from existing nobility. Wrong again, given the right exposure and support all children have abilities in them to achieve outstanding results in life.

Born in a manger, walked the street proclaiming the kingdom of God, died on the cross outside Jerusalem to save mankind. It’s been over two thousand years and the world is never going to recover from influence of Jesus Christ.

Goes to prove, there’s no stopping you; you can start from anywhere and rise to any position in this world, irrespective of your humble beginning. If you’ll set your mind on your preferred destination and make sure every step you take is in the direction of your choice, chances are, nothing can stop you but yourself.

It might take longer than you had thought and possibly cost a lot more than you allowed in your budget, but 9 out of 10 times, you’ll get to the peak of you desired mountain. Whatever you do, don’t throw away your flag; you’ll need it at the top.

The Magi must have travelled around 500 miles. Following the ancient trade routes, they must have had to go through Jerusalem. Their destination is only 6 miles south, but they nearly didn’t make it because they stopped too soon. This is similar to the classic story of the great Insurance man, R. U. Darby and his uncle during the American gold rush; stopped three feet from gold.

You shall not stop short of your destination in Jesus’ name. I see you achieve great things; you shall fulfil your destiny.

Amen!! Reminds me of the lady Jesus referred to as a dog. She had so much faith in Jesus as the only hope for her daughter's deliverance and that made her stay though another person might have felt humiliated. I imagine she could have picked up a fight when Jesus said 'the bread is for the children not the dogs'. And she would have walked away from her miracle. Thankfully she stayed, accepting any humiliation as long as she could walk away in victory. Her desired goal was far more important to her than her emotions. Her faith gave her the assurance to remain. Would have helped the R U Darby and his uncle to keep pursueing their dream no matter how tired, frustrated and stupid they felt. We must each learn to sharpen our dreams and turn them to vision in order to elevate our vision above our feelings! Don't Quit!
