Scripture Reading: Mat 1:20
But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
Reflections: Mary was visited by the angel and received a mandate to conceive and give birth to the savior of the world. Under this mandate, She was found to be pregnant. This troubled her fiancé, Joseph since the pregnancy had social implications which will tarnish his image. Without Mary’s knowledge, Joseph began to plan to exit the relationship. God will not let this happen, since Joseph was required to play an instrumental role in Mary’s life as a husband. Through a dream, God brought the needed conviction to Joseph to keep up with his relationship. There are people God brings our way to help us walk in our destinies but sometimes some circumstances will seek to disengage them from us. In such instances, we need God to intervene on our behalf. Like the case of Mary, the hand of God will overrule any contrary decisions your destiny helpers will decide to take. Certainly, your destiny helpers will be kept at work by divine conviction!
Prayer: Dear Lord, may your hand overrule any decision by my destiny helpers which is contrary to your expectations.
Confession: Any divinely appointed destiny helper will not change their minds regarding their given roles in my life. God shall overrule all such contrary decisions and keep them convicted to play their roles in my life.
