Joseph - Matthew 1:18-25

Here we find another powerful “thin place” where Heaven once again touches the heart and soul of man, this time in a dream. Poor Joseph must have thought he was going crazy, or, at the very least, that he was about to be disowned from all of his family and friends. We notice here that as God calls us to do something that is difficult or uncomfortable, he, at the same time, provides comfort and support. Notice how faithful Joseph is and how he was obedient even when it seemed awkward and frightening.

Could you respond in the same way that Joseph did? As you face challenges, decisions and opportunities, DO you respond in the same way Joseph did? As we approach these last 4 days till Christmas, open your heart and your will to be obedient to God’s calling on your life.
