LET MY STAR SHINE
Matthew 2, Luke 2:1-20, Numbers 23:23
Matthew 2:7-9, ”Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also. When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.”There are three main truths implied by these verses:
1. In the realm of the spirit there is something known as ‘his star.” I come to this conclusion because the wise men claimed to have seen his star. If there was no star, they would not have claimed to seen one.
2. We can also imply that this star can be seen by those whose eyes have been trained to see such stars. They said, “We have seen his star.” Jesus’ next-door neighbors who were not trained to see this star did not see it, but the people who had been trained to see such things saw it.
3. By seeing the star, one can tell what a person will grow up to be in life.
From the dream of Joseph we also understand that each everyone born on Earth has his own star. From Joseph dream the eleven brothers were seen in his dream as eleven stars
“Now he had still another dream, and related it to his brothers, and said, “Lo, I have had still another dream; and behold, the sun and the moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me.” (Genesis 37:9)
SOMETIMES SOMEONE’S STAR CAN BE STOLEN
One of the things the enemy loves to steal is a person’s star. The effect of such an evil act is that it hinders the victim from achieving God’s purpose.
As Harold tried to destroy Jesus so also it is to today. That when somebody who can lead becomes a subject.
Some have their star stolen in the womb; other stars are stolen at childbirth, while others are stolen after the victims are fully grown
STARS CAN BE SOLD AND EXCHANGED.
Esau Sells His Birthright Genesis 25:29-34(Hebrews 12:16)
There are many today whose stars are working for someone else while they suffer needlessly.
They take the star of the overcomer and give it to the loser, and they give the star of the loser to the overcomer, leading to a reversal of destiny. They harvest the star of a man born to be a millionaire and give it to a beggar. The star of one with an easy life can be exchanged for the one with a hard life. The star of one born to be the head can be exchanged for that of one born to be the tail. The star of the one born to be a managing director can be harvested for the one born to be a messenger. The star of the winner can also be harvested and exchanged with that of the loser, while the star of the one born to be an engineer can be exchanged with that of the road side mechanic.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN SOMEONES STAR IS SEEN
There two things that happens when someone’s star is seen. One is to worship the person or support him to grow as we saw that the wise men came and worship Jesus. “For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him” These men came from far country to worship Jesus.
The second point is to destroy the star or cover the star from been shining as we saw in the action of Harold who is very near to Jesus more than the wise men. King Herod the Great plans how to kill Jesus – Matthew 2:16-18
OVERCOMING THE ENEMY OF YOUR STAR
The account of the early life of Jesus as recorded in the book of Matthew has a lot to teach us about overcoming the enemy of our star. Everything was fine until Herod heard from the wise men about the birth of Jesus. They told him that the star they saw from the east was that of one destined to be a king. Herod saw Jesus as a possible rival, and he resolved to eliminate Him by all means at his disposal.
As it was then, so it is now. You will find out today that there are people who were not happy with your progress that may give you a clue about the battles in your life. And some pretends that they are your friends, but they are there to get a valuable information which they will use against you.
Somebody somewhere may not be too excited about God’s plan for your life and may be determined to cover your star or exchange it so that you cannot achieve anything in life.
1. The wise men looked for Jesus – from now, they that matters will begin to look for me!
2. They came from the east, they came from far – This year, and distance will not hinder my manifestation. I will break every barriers of success
3. Every stronghold like the prince of Persia did to Daniel that has purposed to hinder my breakthrough – Lord, be uprooted Now
4. They asked “Where is he?” – Lord, before the end of this week, before the end of this month, before the end of this year, they will ask for me and my family– TO BLESS ME!
5. Every negative “covering” that has been shielding me from manifesting and the Glory of the Lord been seen in my life – Be destroyed in Jesus name.
6. Lord blind every Harold that will see my star and will not be happy
7. My Father in heaven, command everyone who sees my star bring gift to me
8. Every star in my family that is hidden – I command you to show up!
9. Every star in my life that has been exchanged I command you to be released. In the name of Jesus.
10. Every star in my life that has been stolen be restored NOW
