Meet Jesus: Interventionist Matthew 1:20

Matthew 1:20: But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

 Meeting Jesus means submitting to God’s intervention.   He is not interested in your failing.  He is not interested in your making the wrong decision.  He will intervene.  Though Joseph had a good plan for protecting Mary, God had a great plan for placing Joseph in the key position of caretaker and raiser of His son.

Joseph took time to contemplate, and God intervened. Being around Jesus is like that.  God wants to help the situation turn out for good.

ACT!  Let God intervene in your situation.  Lay it out.  Contemplate.  Think about where He might step in and act.

 PRAY!  You, Father, are full of power.  I open my situation to Your intervention.  Take a step in, Father of Jesus, and make my life different.
