When God gets specific, get going

After the wise men were gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up! Flee to Egypt with the child and his mother,” the angel said. “Stay there until I tell you to return, because Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.” Matt. 2:13

Sometimes God gives specific instructions and even says why. And, since it was the second time an angel spoke to Joseph in a dream, God’s message delivery vehicle seemed reliable. Joseph didn’t even ask “Egypt? Tonight? Really?”

Lord, help me to recognize your direct instructions and follow them.
