Are you worn out from Christmas? Did you get any toys from Santa? How about any spiritual gifts from God? Was God good to you?
It’s the end of the year and it’s a good idea to take inventory and count our blessings of the past year. “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)
God sent His Son, Jesus to die for our sins and save the world. So here is the baby Jesus in a manger and the ruthless king Herod wants to kill him. But it wasn’t the right time yet, so the Holy Family has to get up and get on the road again. God provides an escape, protection, and a new destination.
How about you? Have you ever sensed that God had provided an escape from evil…protection…or a new destination in your life’s path? Join the club. He does it on a regular basis.
