He remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: “OUT OF EGYPT I CALLED MY SON.” (Matthew 2.15)
The Circuitous Methods of God
Life is puzzling. Especially when you know nothing is random but it seems so, ah, random. When my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer we were shocked! She was young, healthy, ate the right things, exercised, not to mention a godly women living for Christ. But we learned so much from the experience and it drew us so much closer to Jesus. It would eventually train us for the future. When an Angel came and told Joseph and Mary to flee, there should be a thousand questions that pop into our minds. “God, why not just change Herod’s mind or even easier kill the wicked bugger?” But God has a bigger plan with results far more glorious than we can imagine. This is where our faith kicks in. We need to trust that His ways are better than our ways (Isaiah 55.8-9).
Where have you been blindsided by life? How can you take practical steps to trust God?
