Advent 2022 – Day 21: Matthew 2:22-23

But when he heard that Archelaus was reigning over Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there, and being warned in a dream he withdrew to the district of Galilee. And he went and lived in a city called Nazareth, so that what was spoken by the prophets might be fulfilled, that he would be called a Nazarene.

Matthew 2:22-23, ESV

At Advent, we look back at why Jesus had to come, that He came, and then that He will come again.

Jesus came to live amongst us, bringing danger to His earthly family.

Though one danger may pass, it does not mean all danger is gone.

We still see that God protects His own.

The one who tried to kill fellow image-bearers in an attempt to destroy God had died, but his just as twisted son took his place.

God once again sent a dream to Joseph to protect this family. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph were still not completely safe, but in this moment we can see that God keeps His promises.

God was not surprised by any of the events surrounding the birth and early childhood of Jesus. In fact, He had it prophesied centuries earlier.

There were still those who would hurt the young Jesus and God’s faithful servants.

Yet, God came to us, showing His omniscience and omnipotence, that He knew it would all happen but that He would stop our enslavement to sin and rebellion.

This world may not be safe, and we also know that this world is not our home, but we can rely on the promises and prophecies of God.

Again, Christ has shown us how to live and trust and love in the midst of danger.

May we seek the Lord who has saved us from sin and shown us His power over time, death, and evil.

VerseD: Psalm 28:7

Psalm 28:7, ESV

We often act like we can control our lives, doing what we can to make sense of the world.

Only with God are we strong enough for this life and to make it to the next. May we trust in Him and praise Him with all we are.

VerseD: Psalm 8:3-4

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?

Psalm 8:3‭-‬4, ESV

God created all of space, matter, and time, from the largest galaxy cluster to the tiniest speck of matter and beyond.

Yet, He watches over and cares for each of us.

Trust in Him.
