Scripture Reading: Matthew 2:13
And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.
Reflection: King Herod moved with such swiftness to kill baby Jesus. He had all the babies in the city from 2 years and below killed. How happy he felt! There was no way Jesus could escape, he thought. But events proved otherwise. Joseph had already migrated to Egypt with Mary his wife and baby Jesus before his action took place. Jesus was therefore far away from danger and totally safe from Herod’s threat. The plan to escape this evil scheme of Herod was revealed to Joseph in a dream. Don’t underestimate the power of dreams. It can keep you away from satanic plans of destruction. God is still in the business of revealing diabolical plans against the life of his children. Ask him for such dreams. You will surely outwit your enemies by the power of a dream!
Confession: I walk in the power of dreams in the name of Jesus. I shall escape any diabolical plan against my life by the power of dreams. By the mercies of God, I shall always dream and know what my enemies are planning against me. I shall always outwit them.
