God will always outwit evil and its agents

Rev Enoch Thompson | JANUARY 6, 2023 | MATTHEW 2:13-14


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." Matt 2:13 (NIV)


Herod had his plans well laid and was convinced that the godly Wise Men would comply with his deceptive plan and bring him information of the whereabouts of the new-born King. The Most High sits on His throne and laughs at the schemes of Satan and his evil demonic and human accomplices. They plan but God out-plans them and outwits them on every front.

The Wise Men were directed by God to go in a different direction away from Herod. Joseph was directed in a dream to escape with the Baby and His mother, to go into hiding in Egypt to escape the cruel plan of Herod. With the gold, frankincense and myrrh Joseph and Mary had enough foreign exchange to make the journey and to easily settle in in Egypt. Oh the marvels of the intricate wisdom of our infinite God.

As we travel the rest of life’s journey you can be sure that the enemies of your souls will scheme, but God is the greatest of schemers and will outwit them always to your advantage.


Trust God to outwit and outdo the enemies of your soul and your faith. Obey God in all the word He sends to you like Joseph did.


Father, as I go through life, give me the fortitude to obey your word so that I will overcome all the schemes of the enemy. Amen
