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: The wisemen in their search for baby Jesus arrived in Jerusalem. They visited the palace and made enquiries from King Herod. Unknowing to them, their interaction with Herod had placed the life of Jesus in great danger. Even though Herod planned to kill the child, he missed his mark. God had instructed Joseph to leave town with the baby way before Herod’s executors moved into action. Information about your destiny is so crucial that it should not get into the hands of your enemies. In cases where such information is inadvertently leaked to them, you must trust God to foil their plans. Just as God caused Herod to miss his mark, so will he cause all those who are incensed against your life and destiny to miss their mark. You will be preserved by God to manifest your destiny. Ask Him to do so.
Prayer: Oh Lord, preserve my life and destiny from my enemies. Let them miss their mark each time they strike.
Confession: My enemies will always miss their mark each time they strike. My destiny is under divine covering.
