Christmas Story Devotional
Matthew 2:12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route. 13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. "Get up," he said, "take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him." (NIV)
The Lord works in people's lives. Sometimes God uses angels as messengers. Sometimes
God uses dreams. Sometimes God does not work in ways we know anything about for He is
invisible and hidden. Most of us would want a dramatic warning of impending peril. Quite
often, we already know of dangers in our future if we just take a moment and look within.
What is important in our lives is that we follow the Lord's direction. What is important
is that we do what the Lord wants us to do, rather than doing what we want to do. The Lord
has left us His written words and if we are willing He instills in us His love. When we
want to know what His will is, we can look into His gospel record, The Bible, and then
look into our heart.
