Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her! -Luke 1:45
Mary and Joseph are a beautiful example of what it looks like to trust and obey God. Even when things didn’t make sense and their flesh was afraid, they chose to be obedient. I love the way my Pastor puts it; Part of being kingdom focused is looking ahead to what God has for us!
In Matthew 1:18-25 we see Joseph planning to quietly divorce Mary when he found out she was with child. That evening an angel of the Lord spoke to Joseph in a dream and commanded him to 1) not be afraid 2) take Mary as his wife and 3) to name the child Jesus. When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.
My prayer this week is that I would be like Mary and Joseph, looking ahead to what God has in store and walking in obedience. Knowing that His plan is always best, even when it may be difficult to see and understand. I am going to make getting still before God a priority and look for opportunities and ways that He is leading, never taking a step without prayerfully seeking Him. Then I will walk obediently, knowing that it may not make sense when I take that first step but I know that God’s plan is always best.
My prayer is that God uses these short devotionals to encourage and challenge you.
