It is easy to see where a betrothed husband (like Joseph) could struggle with the news of his soon-to-be-wife’s pregnancy.  In human terms, it couldn’t be.  The only human alternative would be divorce.  Yet, when Joseph opened Himself to God’s leading, he found the strength and understanding for grace, forgiveness (though he didn’t need it in this case).  Let God direct you in how to act and react to natural things around you so that you see the supernatural accompaniments too.

Lord, I surrender to Your plan and Your Holy Spirit to work in my life.

Revelation

When we are Mended by Jesus we can have the Light of God in every area of our life.  This illumination can guide us to Know God better and can also guide us to have the Mindset of Christ.  We can make the type of decision that Joseph was able to make in today’s text.
