As I read through Matthew today, my third day reading the first few chapters, I was struck when reading the Phillips version, way in which it is worded... "But while he (being Joseph) was turning the matter over in his mind..." How often do we contemplate, "turn" things over in our minds and depend on our own understand, rather than seek God in the process? The chances of an angel coming to us in a dream to help us with a decision might be pretty slim, however, that is what "dwelling in the Word" is for to lead us rightly to the LORD's will and purpose in our life. "Your word is a lamp that gives light wherever I walk." ~Psalm 119:105 (Common English Version)
I am floored by how faithful God is, even when I struggle to see His instruction. As we continue our journey to KNOW God, I believe we can learn so much from one another, while learning ALL THAT GOD HAS for each one of us.
