What I’m listening to: The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late) by The Chipmunks
We are on day 23 of our advent series!! As always, if you’re new, be sure to check out my previous posts in the series. The first post also has some additional information about our Advent devotionals. Now let’s dive back into Matthew!
After Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who were trying to take the child’s life are dead.”
Matthew 2:19-20 (NIV)
Do you ever feel like God is never going to give you something you want? Whether it be a job, a date or something else entirely, most of us have wondered when or even if God was going to come through. As illustrated here in Matthew though, we are reminded that not only does the Lord have a time for everything, He also has a reason. We should not become discouraged simply because something isn’t happening on our time schedule. Just because it’s not lining up with your plan doesn’t mean God is ignoring you. He wants and knows best for us, and He will bring about great things in His time.
Prayer Prompt: Pray for patience so that you may be grateful instead of exasperated when God gives you what you wanted.
