4th Sunday of Advent
1In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2This was the first registration whena Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3And all went to be registered, each to his own town.

God has a way of orchestrating and using life events in ways we cannot begin to phathom. Look at Joseph in the Bible. God gsvd him dreams about his future, which made hos brothers jealous. Then his brothers sold him into slavery, which got him to Egypt where Potiphar’s wife accused him and jad him arrested, which positioned him to meet Pharaoh’s cupbearer and baker and interpreting their dreams, eventually this led to his being brought to Pharaoh to interpret his dream. Tjst led to Pharaoh rewarding Joseph with a position of authority second only to himself in all Egypt fulfilling the dream God had given him many years before.
Mary believed the angel that said she would be pregnant by the Holy Spirit. She said, “let it be done to me as you have said.” She did not refuse out of fear for her life or fear of losing her fiance Joseph.
What thing(s) has God prepared and fulfilled or is fuldilling in your life? Are you cooperative like Mary and patient like Joseph?
Father God, in Jesus’ name we ask Your blessings and wisdom upon each person praying this prayer. Speak life and purpose over us. Help us to be cooperative/submissive, obedient, and patient with waiting times, but also attentive that we may learn what You’re teaching us in the waiting well and without delay. May our lives glorify You in all things. We praise and thank You! Amen.
Blessings of Hope & Joy,
