Life is full of hard choices, difficult situations, and uncertain circumstances. It is right and good to look for answers by seeking and studying, thinking and planning, but sometimes that’s not enough.
Sometimes what we need most is just to listen.
Four times in Matthew chapter 2, God reveals the right path in a dream. The assumption, of course, is that the people He speaks to are listening.
Whether through dreams, Scripture, a word from a friend or circumstances themselves, God is always speaking to show the right path to those who will listen.
