Stay in Touch!

Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.” When he arose, he took the young Child and His mother by night and departed for Egypt, and was there until the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, “Out of Egypt I called My Son.”(Matthew 2:13-15)
Stay in touch with God. It just may save your life. Just remember Joseph and Mary and little baby Jesus! Had Joseph not had the intimate and no doubt 24/7 relationship with the Father, he would have not received the message nor trusted the angel when he said:"flee to Egypt". Again, Joseph immediately did as he was told. There was no time for debate. There was no time to check Weather Channel or to Google the traffic in the area. It was leave or have your Son killed! Like Abraham, Moses, Mary and others, Joseph knew he heard from God and he swiftly obeyed. Oh, if only you and I were so tuned in to God and were so quick to obey!
