where is the path

Church is reading a chapter of Matthew each day until Christmas. I was really caught by my markings from previous readings of Chapter 2.in the fog

God’s way is not always easy to see.

Matthew 2 shares about the prophecies of Jesus. Even Herod knew of those words and was in fear when the Magi talked of the star, because Bethlehem would bring the “ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.”

Joseph was warned to go to Egypt, which matches the prophecy, “Out of Egypt I called my son.”

When Herod was gone, Joseph was told to go to Nazareth. Fulfilling another prophetic message, “He will be called a Nazarene.”

Joseph listened. He heard through dreams and obeyed.

The road is not always straight and easy to see. So tune your ears and check directions. God does have a plan and a destination but it might look different than you were thinking. I know my journey has!

    Our pastor spent Sunday followed the same trail speaking about what a man of faith Joseph was to follow all the dreams he received. Funny perspective shared was he did it all without uttering a word.

    Interestingly enough, God doesn’t lay it all out before us. When I look back I was merely feeling my way up the road and really not seeing. My prayer is that I have vision to see 20/20 so my path is straighter with more definition. Feeling is good but I want great! Blessings on you Judy!
