Look at our great Orchestrator. God caused a woman (Mary), to get pregnant by the Holy Spirit. The woman just so happened to be engaged to a man (Joseph) who is originally from Bethlehem. At the same time, she was pregnant, the Caesar just so happens to decree that everyone return to their own city for registration purposes. Seeing that Joseph was the soon to be head of his family, he and his very pregnant fiancé went back to Bethlehem. While at Bethlehem, Jesus was born. Coincidence? I think not.

Since the Pharisees didn’t do their research on where Jesus was born, they didn’t believe He was the Christ, which ultimately led to His death for the sacrifice for all our sin.

As we see how God orchestrated the life of Jesus, let’s look at our lives. If He orchestrated the life of Jesus to fulfill a prophecy spoken hundreds of years before, He can do the same for us.

God will cause what happened to us (good or bad), where we’re from, and what we experienced to work out for our good (Rom. 8:28). Don’t be concerned with where you are now. It’s just a temporary holding place in a great song. Our song is not over. If we can believe, God can cause this song, which He’s orchestrating, to become a masterpiece.

John 7:41 Others said, “This is the Christ.” But some said, “Will the Christ come out of Galilee? 42 Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was?”
