James 1:5

And if anyone longs to be wise, ask God for wisdom and he will give it! He won’t see your lack of wisdom as an opportunity to scold you over your failures but he will overwhelm your failures with his generous grace. (TPT)

If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. (MSG)

  1. Humble Admission/confession of our need: we don’t know everything/anything. Humility is good for all of us. We hate to admit when we don’t know something or need help. We hate to ask for help.
  2. Simple Belief in God’s goodness, wisdom, power. Isaiah 55: “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my way higher than your ways, and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”
  3. Simple Transaction of Asking – There is honor in the asking. It establishes a relationship between God as our Father, and us as His sons. However, it is contingent upon faith/belief in Jesus as the Son of God who was sacrificed for our sins that separated us from intimacy with God. Jesus says, “No one comes to the Father except through me.” That’s how we become sons – through Jesus Christ.

For familiar passages like this, I like to read it from a contemporary translation like the Passion Translation or The Message for a fresh hearing of the Scriptures. Prayed for Guardrail’s Aunt Marilyn in open-heart surgery for healing and salvation for his cousin. Also prayed for several guys and their families recovering from COVID: Borg, Three-peat, Tuba, Kick.

“Epiphany, also known as Theophany in the east, is a Christian feast day that celebrates the revelation of God incarnate as Jesus Christ.
In Western Christianity, the feast commemorates principally (but not solely) the visit of the Magi to the Christ Child, and thus Jesus Christ’s physical manifestation to the Gentiles.” (Wikipedia)

Epiphany – (1): a usually sudden manifestation or perception of the essential nature or meaning of something. (2): an intuitive grasp of reality through something (such as an event) usually simple and striking. (3): an illuminating discovery, realization, or disclosure.

Matt 2:1-12 (ESV)
2 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” 3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him; 4 and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. 5 They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet:
6 “‘And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for from you shall come a ruler
who will shepherd my people Israel.’”
7 Then Herod summoned the wise men secretly and ascertained from them what time the star had appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, saying, “Go and search diligently for the child, and when you have found him, bring me word, that I too may come and worship him.” 9 After listening to the king, they went on their way. And behold, the star that they had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. 11 And going into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh. 12 And being warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they departed to their own country by another way.

1. God still manifests Himself to us.
2. Wise men still seek Him – from all traditions
3. Wise men meditate on the Word.
4. Wise men worship Him – and don’t come empty handed.
5. Wise men listen when God speaks.
