When facing the unknown, do not be afraid

Genesis 46:2-4: At an old age, Jacob is preparing to leave the only country he has ever known.

God spoke to Israel in visions of the night, and said, “Jacob, Jacob.” And he said, “Here I am.” Then he said, “I am God, the God of your father; do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for I will make of you a great nation there. I myself will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also bring you up again; and Joseph’s own hand shall close your eyes.”

Reflect: What unknown do you face this Advent season? Hear God speak these words: "Do not be afraid."
