The Divine Vulnerability

For a child is born to us, a son is given to us...."  Isaiah 9:6 (NLT) 

Isaiah 7:14 (NLT) 
",,,,the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’). 

Father it is wonderfully amazing the purpose and plan you had to place into the gentle hands of Joseph and Mary your beloved Son. This divine vulnerability of exposing him to human weakness and danger, in which he lived all of his life, was within your protection until the hour of darkness would prevail. In that darkness Jesus would take the punishment and pay the penalty for our sin. (45 ....from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”  Matthew 27:45-46 )

Father it was Joseph's and Mary's priceless privilege of being Jesus' human parents, watching over him and caring for him. Under their guidance and example, He was: " 51 submissive to them. ....52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man." Luke 2:51-52 (ESV) 

Father how grateful we are that Jesus ultimately entered his ministry and finished his work of salvation. In all of this we see the divine vulnerability of infinite wisdom and the human responsibility of insightful parenting.

Thank you, Father, for your wonderful plan and the personal promise of John 3:16 (ESV) “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. " Amen!
