And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, good will toward men.
Have you ever wondered what it was really like that first Christmas? Was there excitement and joy in the air? Was there a great anticipation of what was about to happen?
For Mary and Joseph it must of been terrifying. They were out of town and having their first baby. They were in a place that was not suitable for having a baby. There was no comfort of a proper delivery but God provided a barn with a manger. Praise God, He always provides.
While that may not have been exactly what the young couple desired, it’s what God determined. Sometimes our plans may not ever come to pass but God has it all under control. We must trust the will of God. Glory to God.
God wants us to experience the joy of Jesus. God loves you so much that He has provided a way for you to experience joy that is unexplainable. A joy that sometimes doesn’t make sense. A joy that lasts forever.
God has a way of bringing all things together at the right time and at the right place. He will never fail you. He will only impress you as you patiently wait on Him. Is there anything that you need God to provide for you?
While you are waiting, start praising Him. Sing praises to His name. Lift your head and be ready to receive whatever God provides because whatever it is, it’s what He determines to be good for you. Praise His great name.
Lord, You are the great Provider. You always know what I need and what is best for me. Help me to wait on You and trust Your great ways.
