God Is In Control

Micah 5:2–But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

The birth of Jesus–God was in control of all the circumstances surrounding the birth of Jesus.  He revealed these circumstances to the prophets of the Old Testament.  He spoke through them to make known to mankind the details surrounding Jesus’ birth hundreds of years before it occurred.  He then brought these things to pass.

God is in control of the circumstances surrounding our lives also.  He watches over us to work all things for good to us because we love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).  He will give us direction through the Holy Spirit and His word.  It is then up to us to follow His directions as we enter this new year.
