Dreams *Matt. 1:20-2:22

Dreams are important. When you honor God with your life, God honors you. He will intervene in your life to guide you. All we have to do is listen and follow Him.
Mary was blessed, but so was Joseph because God was speaking to him directing their family to safety. God spoke to Joseph several times through dreams:
~~~
1: 20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
~~~
2: 12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they (the Magi) returned to their country by another route.
~~~
2:13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.”
~~~
2: 19 After Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt 20 and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who were trying to take the child’s life are dead.”
