Not the enemy

When Mary & Joseph ended up having to travel to a remote village to register in a census you could argue their circumstances weren't the best, but ultimately they were the best.
Travelling heavily pregnant and not getting to book accomodation ahead of time was all part of the tricky circumstances they faced.
Maybe they had conversations about how trying their circumstances were and whether God had it right?
They actually fulfilled prophecy that they were probably blissfully unaware of.
And it meant they were in the right place for God's best.

I think sometimes we treat our circumstances as our enemy...
But what if your circumstances are actually working for you more than against you?
What if they are bringing you to a better destination, even if the road is a bit more bumpy than you would choose for yourself?

Doesn't God promise to be with us, look after us and more?

The Lord directs the steps of the godly.
    He delights in every detail of their lives. Psalm 37:23 nlt

My friend, please know that if you are doing whatever you can to faithfully live for Christ, that everything, and I mean everything is exactly the way it needs to be.
God has a planned your steps and is leading to the best place possible for your life!

Something to think about...
