Max Lucado – When You’re Confused by God’s Actions

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

The Bible says in Matthew 1:24 that “Joseph did what the Lord’s angel had told him to do.” I wonder what Joseph was thinking while Jesus was being born?  Was a stable in Bethlehem what he had in mind?

You’ve probably stood where Joseph stood when things haven’t turned out like you thought they would—maybe outside an emergency room or on the manicured grass of a cemetery.  When you wondered why does God do what he does.  Joseph didn’t let confusion disrupt his obedience.  He shut down his business, packed up his family, and even went to another country.  Why?  Because that’s what God said to do.  Because Joseph obeyed, God used him to change the world.  He does the same with us.  Be a modern day Joseph.  God will use you to bring Jesus into the world.
