"At that time the Roman emperor, Augustus, decreed that a census should be taken throughout the Roman Empire. (This was the first census taken when Quirinius was governor of Syria.) All returned to their own ancestral towns to register for this census. And because Joseph was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, David's ancient home. He traveled there from the village of Nazareth in Galilee. He took with him Mary, his fiancee who was now obviously pregnant." ~ Luke 2:1-5
God is always at work. He is in control of every situation. He either causes things to happen or allows them to happen. It's never a coincidence or luck. All of life is under God's hand. Prophecy told us Jesus would be born in Bethlehem and that he would be from King David's line, and here we see that prophecy beginning to unfold. Don't think for a minute that the census was just a coincidence, on the contrary, it was all apart of God's plan.
Almighty God, I am so thankful that You are always in control. Nothing comes to us without first going through You. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. "
