When Caesar issued a decree for a census, Joseph left Galilee and moved to Bethlehem of Judaea. The prophecy about Jesus’ birth, according to Micah 5 vs. 2, revealed that Jesus would be born in Bethlehem, not in Galilee. Galilee was not the location for Jesus to be born, it was contrary to God’s plan, and Joseph walked away with his wife. Joseph went to Bethlehem which was God’s plan for Jesus’ birth; he aligned with God’s plan.
Friend, as 2019 makes way for 2020, align yourself with God’s plan. Move-in the direction of what God would have you do; move in the direction of God’s intention for your life; move in the direction of God’s plan and purpose for your destiny; align yourself with the locations where God has deposited your portion; align yourself with the places and people who are in custody of your divine package. Align yourself with the God-approved environment for your greatness and results.
Joseph could not arrive at Bethlehem until he left Galilee. He could not align with the location of God’s purpose until he walked away from the place that was not God’s purpose. You may never be in alignment with the place of God’s purpose until you walk away from the places and people that are clearly contrary to the purpose and plan of God for your life; if there is no walking away, there may be no stepping in to align with God’s agenda.
Joseph may not have known that he was aligning with God’s plan when he went back to Bethlehem prior to Jesus’ birth, but God was working behind the scenes to make him do what was according to His (God’s) will. Ask God to align you with His will; ask God to push you into the pathway that will take you to your place in destiny; ask God to use the events of life to align you with His perfect will.
Remember, if God’s will for your life will find fulfillment, then you need to be in alignment with His will. Align yourself today, with God’s will and watch out for manifestations.
