verse 20-21: But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
In modern culture and science, we have become accustomed to dismissing dreams as simply a reflection of our own subconscious world. We are working through conflict, resolving issues and grappling with uncomfortable parts and places in our minds. But God has spoken to many through dreams. Why can’t He speak to us today in this same way? What if Joseph had dismissed what he heard in his dreams? I want to be ready to hear what God is instructing me to do. I need to be listening and open to God’s direction.
Holy Father, Lead me and speak to me so that I may hear you and follow your direction. Help me to be vigilant and not miss that direction. Amen
