It never ceases to amaze me how God orchestrates His plans. I’ve always sad that there is no such thing as a coincidence. God does not do anything by accident. He has a plan, and His will shall be accomplished.

It was no coincidence that Caesar Augustus chose to take a census. It was no coincidence that Joseph as of the line of David. It was no coincidence that Bethlehem was the family hometown.

God foretold these things through His prophets, and at just the right time, He started these things in motion.

1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to their own town to register. 4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. (Luke 2:1-4)
