When we experience the struggles that come in life, we have to rely on God’s strength to get us through. As we continue to look at the story of Joseph and how he accepted his role as the earthly father of Jesus, we’ll see how he’s depending on God to give him wisdom and the power to do what he needed to do. He was rightly related to God and that was key in helping him face the truth of his situation.
