Scripture:
“When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.” ~Matthew 1:24

Observation:
Joseph didn’t exactly get what he was planning on. He was probably planning on settling down to his new life with his new bride. Instead he gets the responsibility of a child that isn’t his. We know that Joseph was obedient, but I wonder if he was a little reluctant.

Application:
I’d like to be as willing to be obedient as Joseph was. Some circumstances in my life have definitely not been what I would have chosen. I just want to do what I’m called to do.

Prayer:
Father, I have to say that I’m sometimes disappointed by the way things have gone. I know that things will work out in the end, but I hadn’t planned on everything that has happened. Regardless, help me to be obedient. At the end, I want to be able to say that, like Joseph, I did what You asked me to.
