The Lord gave this to me and it truly blessed me. Read, reflect and rejoice about the magnitude of our God. Love you!
Prophecy: Jesus was to be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2).
Situation: Joseph & very pregnant Mary are in Nazareth/Galilee about 70 or so miles away (and with no modern transportation, I might add).
Solution: Caesar declares a tax and all people, including Joseph and Mary have to make their way to their own/home city (Luke 2:3-5).
Lesson: God used a carnal government official to make His Word/promise come to pass. He’s that powerful!!
Proverbs 21:1 declares, “the king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: He turneth it whithersoever He will.” When we think about that, it helps us to understand who God really is and how He organizes circumstances to accomplish His will. While we may not understand or like our current situation(s), with His help, we need to trust He knows what He’s doing.
Bottom line: Paul reminds us by saying, “and we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28). Amen? Amen! Keeping this in mind in and in your heart will help YOU #StayOnTheWall.
God bless you!
