I Am My beloved’s and My beloved is Mine. You are My beloved. I planned your purpose before the foundations of the earth. I have good things for you. Partner with Me to walk out your destiny and bring Me glory.


You need to be famous for Who you stand with–who you stand for. That is the Jesus Christ way of doing things. Amen.

So the angel of the Lord shows up to Joseph, not in person but in a dream. That’s very interesting because the angel of the Lord showed up to Mary in person but he showed up to Joseph in a dream and tells Joseph that this is real and he needs to get with the program. Boom. Dream over. 

Joseph wakes up and knows this is real. Again, the character of Mary and Joseph is so different. God doesn’t have to perform a hundred miracles for them to get with the program. They immediately recognize what and where God is and they get into alignment for their assignment. 

Mary and Joseph could be trusted with this thing and there has probably never been two other human beings that God could trust with this miraculous birth the way that He was able to trust Mary and Joseph. Can God trust you like that? Or does He have to jump through a thousand hoops to get you to cooperate with Him? 

Mary cooperated by saying “yes” despite the possibility of being stoned to death by those who would not believe her, even her beloved Joseph. Joseph got with God’s program. He not only spared Mary, but took the ridicule, shame, and weight of every accusation upon his shoulders.

They are famous for who they stood with–each other–and who they stood for–Jesus, son of God Almighty. Can the same be said of you? Stand for Jesus. Get with God’s program for your life and walk in your destiny. I promise it will be indescribable!

“But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.” – 1 Peter 5:9
