Good morning and Happy New Year!
Text: Matthew 1 (Genesis 1-2)
When the Virgin Mary conceives, it creates an issue for Joseph. He has not been with his betrothed, so the only reasonable explanation for her pregnancy is big trouble. We can imagine that she explains to Joseph, but it is needful that the Lord also reassures him:
But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 1:20)
When things don’t make sense to us, it might be possible that the Lord is at work. It might be possible that things are not as they seem. What has you perplexed this day? Take it to the Lord in prayer. Something astonishing might be afoot.
in Him, Mike
