13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.”
14 So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, 15 where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called my son.”
Wow! What an adventure for a young family to be on! Joseph takes his family to Egypt and waits until it is safe to return. Once again God’s promises are fulfilled; He called His Son out of Egypt. Today is a day to pray for Egypt. Let us turn out attention for a few moments or many moments in prayer for local Christ-following pastors there, as well as Christ-followers, Coptic and Muslim believers who are finding grace and faith in Christ Jesus, the Messiah. God keeps His promises, remember that today. Maintain Hope in our Great Savior! Atheem ilahana!
