He Keeps His Word!
God is faithful!! He will fulfill His promises regardless of:
Mt 2:4-5 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet
V14-15 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.
V16-17 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet
V23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.
LESSON - It baffles my mind how God accomplishes His plan without circumventing the will of man. God did not cause all of those babies to die, that was the will of an evil man. But knowing that would happen, He had a plan to protect the solution for man's evil...His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Two things come to mind as I contemplate God's sovereignty. First, God's plan will be accomplished regardless of the deeds of evil men. Secondly, God is in control of the circumstances of life so I can trust him with mine.
