Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 1:18 NKJV
What can be more disturbing in the life of a young man that to discover that his future wife is with child and he is not the father. That was the predicament Joseph faced and he had to decide how to proceed. He had every right to make a fuss and break off the engagement. But Joseph was not that kind of man, he was not going to marry her but the breakup was going to be discrete. As he pondered all these things in his heart, he had a dream. In his dream, the angel of the Lord told him, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”(verses 20-21).
The visit from the angel, changed his plans. He no longer felt betrayed; he understood the plan of God. Your connection to the individual with the assignment requires a commitment from you. Your love and support is needed to ensure the success of the assignment. Joseph never abandoned Mary. If you choose to abandon the assignment and the individual, the job will get done but you will miss out on the blessings of God. Every year people talk about Mary and Joseph as they celebrate Christmas.
Thought for Today: Your connection is important.
Have a blessed day and Walk in faith and victory.
