Matthew 2


I am particularly captivated by the unique relationship that God shared with Joseph. Joseph was chosen to be the earthly father for God's own Child, Jesus, and God ensured that he was equipped for this sacred task by guiding him every step of the way.


When we examine the way God interacted with Joseph, it becomes evident that Joseph held a Prophet's role. God spoke to him, forewarning him of impending danger and providing clear instructions on how to proceed. Although obeying God's commands often led Joseph and his family to cities with negative reputations among the Jews, it was all part of the fulfillment of prophecy. (Matthew 2:15, Matthew 2:23)


In times of sorrow and uncertainty, God communicated with the head of the household, Joseph, giving him guidance on what actions to take. While Mary is more widely recognized for her relationship with Jesus, Joseph's role was equally vital, as he bore the significant responsibility of being the father and protector of the young Messiah. As Joseph's days on Earth concluded, he had indeed fulfilled his purpose.


All of this highlights a crucial lesson: if God has called you to a task, He will provide guidance on how to accomplish it. It's not necessary to know everything, but perceiving and following God's guidance is essential. Like the Prophet Joseph, your service might go unnoticed by others, and you may not achieve great fame. However, what truly matters is that, at the end of your life, you can say you faithfully accomplished what God set before you to do.

All that really matters at the end of the day is to hear God say well Done! This means that whatever he has given us to do , we must allow Him to lead and Guide us in it and the way in which we perform the task ( character) must be pleasing to God. The Scripture also says- Colossians 3:23-24 KJV

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; [24] Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

This is so encouraging. God is a God of wisdom.


He knows who he can trust with what! I recalled how he chose Paul and Peter, one to the Gentiles and the other to the Jews. He knows what each of us can bear righteously.

I always imagine how easy it was for a women to be stoned to death. Most of the men back then would have probably looked at Jospeh as a fool and Mary has an Adulterer. But God choose a meek and loving man to oversee his mission.


I truly believe God can just give us one task/purpose to Fulfill. Sometimes we might be looking and saying why can’t I do this or that as…

"if God has called you to a task, He will provide guidance on how to accomplish it" really stood out to me. I'm blessed by how Joseph chose to just trust God through all of it. I'm sure he may have felt unworthy or not equipped to be the father of God's son, but he humbled himself to the call anyway. Sometimes I feel like God, are you sure that I'm the one to do a certain thing, like are you sure? But like Joseph, I want to humbly accept what God has called me to and watch Him just guide.

The truth is we aren't worthy because of anything we have done. However, His selection is holy, righteous, and right. Thank you Lord for counting us worthy. It truly is humbling.
