Matthew 2:13-15 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.
This text is a picture of the Power and Wisdom of the "Sovereign" God of the universe. Here we see God's "Divine Providence" and God's "Divine Protection" of Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
God divinely protects His own, even through the test and trials that He may allow to come in our lives. Even in those difficult situations, painful circumstances and hard places in life, God is still in control and directing our paths.
God is forever with us through His Holy Spirit. He is constantly giving us the much needed strength and endurance to continue on in faith with the knowledge and assurance of His everlasting presence with us.
As we learned in our previous lessons, King Herod commanded the "wise men" to return to him and inform him of the location of the birth place of "Jesus" so that he may go and worship him.
Having been divinely warned in a dream, the "wise men" were directed to take another route from the one which in them came from.
People of God, "STAY IN THE WILL OF GOD" for your life and He will divinely direct and protect you too.
Protection from Heaven! This is what God not only offers, but He PROVIDES for those who belongs to Him.
