“After Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, ‘Get up, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who were trying to take the child’s life are dead.’ So he got up, took the child and his mother and went to the land of Israel.” (Mat. 2:19-21)
In the Bible, God asked His people to simply MOVE; from one country to the other or one place to another. There were also times that He asked them to simply STAY; never to move until He said so. It was difficult for quite a number of them; the likes of Joseph, Jacob, Moses, Abraham and the people of Israel in general.
One good thing about these instructions is this; once they OBEYED and moved or stayed in faith, God’s perfect WILL and PURPOSE for them was established.
Joseph, the father of Jesus followed God’s instructions and see where we all are today? Saved by Grace!
Is God asking you to stay or move? Is He asking you to make any major changes in your life, marriage, work or ministry? Maybe you are thinking it’s not going to benefit you so you want to stay in your comfort zone. If you find yourself in this situation, then you are obviously out of faith.
Believe me; He knows what’s best for you. After all, He is the master architect/potter of your life. He chooses to BREAK you and REMOLD you; He chooses where the completed VESSEL (you) would be placed; either at the hall, bedroom or kitchen. In the long run, He makes that ULTIMATE DECISION.
Give yourself a break. Save yourself the stress. Start exercising faith in God today and watch Him turn your life around. It may not be what you want, but it sure is what’s best for you!
