Luke 2:6 So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered.
After the frustratingly long journey, maybe unfair, Mary & Joseph arrive in Bethlehem. Probably thinking they never were going there again. Only a powerful act of God moving upon a secular world empire could have brought them back! Micah 5:2 declared this town would bring forth the Messiah. Many go through trials and hardships cursing & blaming God, for when in actuality, maybe God is moving world powers to bring about His word. We say we are in the last days, and we are, yet what does the bible declare will take place before the Lords coming? It will get much worse before it gets better. We say, God, why is our government so wicked? Well, it has rejected God for many years. We, the redeemed, believers, are exactly where we need to be. We will be just fine even though things are inconvenient for us. Mary had that Child in Bethlehem. Hang on gang, His promises will come to pass in our day and in His timing.
