Our daily prayer for today, Saturday, July 9, 2022, will be taken from the book of Mathew 2:3 and it says:
When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.Mathew 2:3.
What did King Herod and all of Jerusalem hear?
It was the message that a new king is born in Jerusalem (Mathew 2:1-2).
Herod was therefore afraid that this new king shall take the kingdom dynasty from him and probably his lineage; so he sought to kill him immediately.
He tricked the Magi into telling him where exactly the king is so he could go and pay homage to him.
But being warned by God in a dream not to go back to tell Herod where the king is after they saw him, the Magi went on their way.
And Herod never wanting to give up on slaying the new king, ordered all the male born that was born during that period to be killed in Jerusalem
But before he did that, the all-knowing God had instructed the father of Jesus, Joseph to take him to Egypt.
That way our Lord Jesus was totally safe from Herod’s evil plot.
What we should learn from this story.
This is how we Christians are being attacked by the evil ones right from birth.
But what we must know today is that God will always be there to deliver us from their plots because He has a great mission for us in this life.
Heavenly Father, I pray that you deliver me and my family from every evil today and forever.
