The past few years have reminded us of how little control we truly have. As a result, many of us are entering the Christmas season with apprehension, hyper-alert for that next potential catastrophe. But the Christmas story and Joseph and Mary’s escape to Egypt reminds us of the power, protection, and provision of the God who knows every challenge we will face and who will faithfully perfect and protect His hope-filled plans for us.
