Do you feel that your birth was just a random event? Do you understand how close God has been even in the times when you felt totally isolated? Are you blinded by the brilliance of His presence when you are alone?
Many think the birth of Jesus was in a random stable. But early Christian writers point to Migdal Eder as the expected place of His birth. That is the Tower of the Flock located near Bethlehem. He was expected to be born in the same stable reserved for the lambs sacrificed in the Temple. They point to the following verse:
Micah 4:8 (NIV)
8 As for you, watchtower of the flock, stronghold of Daughter Zion,
the former dominion will be restored to you; kingship will come to Daughter Jerusalem.”
Remember that you were born for a purpose anointed and guided by God the Father. Your role in leadership is not a random occurrence in His eyes. It was planned by Him.
