23 Dec Luke 2:1-3

1 Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth. This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria.  And everyone was on his way to register for the census, each to his own city  

Do you think that God can use people who don’t even follow Him or believe in Him? God did just that when He had Caesar Augustus order the census. The prophets had said Jesus would be born in Bethlehem but Joseph and Mary lived in Nazareth. Caesar fulfilled God’s plan by calling for the census to be taken so Joseph and Mary HAD to go to Bethlehem! God places people and events in our lives to draw us closer to Him. Thank Him for the friends and family you have in your life!
