God’s Perfect Timing
“O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by.
Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting light.
The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.”
God did some amazing things in that particular little place on the face of the earth. What happened in that Bethlehem stable was nothing less than the personal arrival of the One who will keep you and me out of hell. For millennia men and women had lived and died, waiting and hoping that this day would come.
God had told his people about what would happen in little Bethlehem centuries earlier through the prophet Micah: “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times” (Micah 5:2).
Isn’t it just like God to do his world-changing work in a little town, in the middle of the night, in an animal shelter? May the light streaming from the stable touch your face this Christmas and make you smile.
