Scripture Reading: Matt 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.
Reflections: Although King Herod knew he had been outwitted by the wise men, he had a quick plan up his sleeves. Having had information from them about the time the star had appeared, he knew Jesus was definitely under the age of 2 years. He, therefore, planned to have all babies under this age killed at once. However, before his executioners will get into action, God uncovered the entire secret plan to Joseph through a dream and told him exactly what to do. As instructed, Joseph fled to Egypt with the baby and His mother, Mary where they were kept safe. Like Joseph, you will be enabled to know the plans of your enemies far ahead of time before they move into action. You will escape danger by divine revelation!.
Prayers: Oh Lord, let me uncover the plans and wicked intentions of my enemies before they move into action.
Confession: I am enabled to uncover the secrets of my enemies. I will not be taken by surprise.
