“And her husband Joseph, being a just man…” –Matthew 1:19, ESV
It can be hard to remember that the people in the Bible were just people. Men and women like you and me, wanting the same sorts of things, struggling with the same sorts of things, and trying to understand their God just as we do. Yes, just after the ellipses, an angel appeared to Joseph, and later in Matthew 2, another angel appears to let Joseph know it is okay to return to Nazareth. We may not see angels every day, but neither did Joseph!
The people God chooses are just people. Fallen, sinful, trying to make it through this life people. Believe that just as God used normal people to perform extraordinary feats through His power, He has chosen you too. Rely on Him alone and He will show you what He has in store for you.
