Matthew 2:22-23. But when he heard that Archelaus was reigning over Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there. After being warned in a dream, he went to the regions of Galilee. He came to a town called Nazareth and lived there. Then what had been spoken by the prophets was fulfilled, that Jesus would be called a Nazarene.

Once again Joseph is listening for the instructions of God. In addition to instructions God gives Joseph wisdom. We also have the gift of wisdom from God. It works along with our listening spiritual ear to God’s instructions. Sometimes the instructions come in the form of dreams but most of the time they are in His written word, the Holy Bible. Our question is are we reading and expecting to find God’s instructions for our next step? Let us open our hearts, minds, ears and spirits to God through His written word each and every day.
