Father, I just Love today's reading because it ties together the relationship between communication between You and me. It brings together the invisible (yet visible) communication that is to be trusted, felt, sensed and acted upon. When one of Your angels appeared to Joseph in a dream and gave him Your instruction, Joseph chose to act upon that invisible, yet visible guidance that came through a dream. Joseph trusted the information that came to him and felt the need to follow through with the inner guidance (intuition).
In today's language we know that "tion" means a 'state of being'. And when you are speaking in to it and the it happens to be me, it is important for me to remain in that 'state of being,' as both a spiritual being in a physical body. My spirit receives guidance from You and my physical body has to follow through. Throughout the Old Testament, one of Your angels has been a common designation of You communicating with a human being. You also have a long history of doing things in three's. You brought a lot of awareness to people in three's and Jesus did a lot of things in three's, which is exactly why it is important to address something that comes in front of me as soon as it happens without waiting for three clues before I straighten up and fly right. Even in Job 33:14-16 it speaks of You coming once, then twice and when we still don't listen You come to us a third time and speak to us in a dream and seal our instruction. I actually like to remember the following scripture because it helps me to look at my intuition in a more spiritual way as really a conversation with You because it reflects the reality that we may not get, "the get", the first or second time. Thank You for this awareness today.
"For God speaks once, yea twice, yet man perceives it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, in slumber upon the bed; then he opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction."
Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matthew 1:16, 18-21, 24
16 Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary. Of her was born Jesus who is called the Messiah.
18 Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found with child through the Holy Spirit.
19 Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly.
20 Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the Holy Spirit that this Child has been conceived in her.
21 She will bear a Son and you are to name Him Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins."
24 When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took his wife into his home.
