Joseph’s Abiding Faith

Advent candle
When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.—Matthew 1:24 NIV
As we reflect on Advent, look to Joseph’s faith and how his actions are shaped by his deep trust in God. Joseph followed the direction of the angel in his dream and did not hesitate to wed Mary. Later in subsequent dreams, Joseph did as he was told with unquestioning obedience.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly father, in this time of preparation and renewal help me to be obedient to Your Will and Your Word.
