Text: Matthew 1:20
He watched her return to her house like he normally did after their visit, every evening. When she got to the door of her house she turned and smiled at him. His smile back to her would have been seen as a grimaced during the day. With child?? Even though she had explained and he knew the prophets enough to remember that verse in Isaiah, why did it have to be her? Of all the women in Israel…how was he going to explain the rushed marriage? or the pregnancy bump? Maybe she was forced in her sleep? The door to her house opened and Mary poked her head and a hand to signal to him if everything was okay…it was then he realized that he was still standing facing the door to her house. He smiled and waved her good night, promptly turning afterward to go on his way home. His heart had stopped for a few minutes when she told him and then didn’t quite beat as it used to when it started again. The right thing was to end the engagement now before anyone else got to know or before it began to show. He knew it would hurt her that he didn’t love her enough to believe her but who in their right minds could? He couldn’t believe this was happening to him for he knew he must put her away privately, Immaculate conception or not. He had made up his mind to send a letter of rejection to her family by the time he had reached the front door of his newly polished house. He will allow himself mourn the loss of their awesome union this night and take the necessary action tomorrow. As he slept, he dreamt, he saw a bright light and a man in the midst of it… “Joseph! …
As Mary’s Fiance, Mr. Joseph was about to take a wrong decision in his life about their marriage, when the Angel of the Lord appeared to warn him in a night dream. By this warning, his future and destiny were salvaged from abortion and shaped aright.
I pray that we will receive and continue to receive guidance from the ministry of Angels in Jesus name.
Dear readers, if we look back at some mistakes and set back which we have experienced in our lives at one time or the other, we are likely going to remember a strong feeling/urge, warning us against our choice. Therefore, I encourage us to be extra sensitive at every major junction of our life.
God still speaks and warns us through his Angels.
Dear Lord, help me to be extra sensitive to your voice and messages to me In Jesus name.
