Matthew 2:13-15 13 Now when they departed, the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, and escape to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word. For Herod will seek the young Child to kill Him.”
14 When he rose, he took the young Child and His mother by night, and departed into Egypt, 15 and remained there until the death of Herod, to fulfill what the Lord had spoken through the prophet, “Out of Egypt I have called My Son.”
God being the Sovereign God that He is, knows all things. He is the "All Wise" God. Nothing is hidden from His sight. Scripture declares that His eyes roams through the earth. In other words, nothing misses the eyes of God for He sees it all.
Yes, God even saw in the mind of King Herod. He saw every detailed thought and intent of His heart concerning His Son Jesus Christ and any and every thought of everyone of us.
God even declares in His Word to know the number of hairs on our heads and the number of days we will live on this earth.
If you have been tricked into believing that you can out smart God, indeed, you are what the bible calls a "FOOL"!
Knowing Herod's intent to kill Jesus, in which he will not succeed, God sent His angel to Joseph in a dream, commanding him to arise and take Mary and Jesus to Egypt as a place of safety because Herod "seeks" to kill Jesus.
The measures people will take in their attempt to destroy you and your purpose, your God given dreams and visions. BUT GOD!!!!!
God created Herod and knew everything about Him.
In obedience to God through the angel, Joseph, along with Mary and Jesus left for Egypt by night and remained there until Herod himself died. He seeked to kill Jesus and he ends up dead. Coincidence? You go figure!
Herod or no one else can stop the plans of God in your life. They may attempt to delay it, but they can’t deny you of God's plan for your life.
In the midst of whatever it is you are dealing with. You too may be on the run, but know this, God has given you an escape route called "Jesus"!
Have you obeyed His voice? He has warned you through His Word.
We can either heed the warnings in His Word or do it our own way and risk being killed by the Herod's that are on our trail.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for He alone has the best "escape" route.
I love you all.
