God told Joseph to marry Mary. He spoke to Joseph through an angel in a Dream. Throughout the entire Bible, God came to people in a variety of ways. It is amazing how frequently angels came, bringing messages. Sometimes their coming was in literal, physical manifestations, sometimes they came in visions. This time an angel came in a dream.
Joseph didn’t have to wonder whether Mary was the right woman for him. God made it clear. That was important, because their relationship was challenged from the start. Mary became pregnant, and Joseph knew that it wasn’t his child.
Having a clear word from God helps us when situations arise, as they always do, to test us. It is vital to commune with God, especially when we are faced with major decisions like who we should marry. Seeking the Lord and asking God for confirmation is very important.
Have you ever had a dream that spoke to you? Ever seen an angel in your dream?
