What simple faith! Joseph did not question the angel's message or doubt God's purpose. Many of us need to be more like the little girl whom the farmer found lost in his meadow. The farmer said to her, "Do not cry; I'll take you home." The little child snuggled up to him, and with a smile, said, "I knew you would; I was waiting for you." "Waiting for me?" said the man. "What made you think I was coming?" "I was praying you would." she said. "Praying? When I first heard you, you were saying A B C D E F G. What was that for?" She looked up again, and said, "I'm just a little girl. I was praying all the letters of the alphabet and letting God put them together the way He wanted to. He knows I was lost, and He knows how to put them together better than I do." What a difference, if we would only let God put the letters of our lives together, and, like Joseph, trust Him regardless of man's opinion.
Rather than trying to fix life's circumstances ourselves, like the little girl, we will find greater benefit when we allow God to put the words together on our behalf. As you experience today, let's do so with faith; knowing that God has already worked it out!
