When [Joseph] heard that Archelaus was reigning over Judea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither; and being warned of God in a dream, he withdrew into the parts of Galilee. Matthew 2.22.

Concerning God’s guidance, this chapter (Matthew 2) mentions the following factors: the knowledge of the Scriptures, the revelation from heaven, the common sense of man, and faith, waiting and obedience.

We need to exercise common sense in the midst of God’s guidance. God only charged Joseph to go back to the land of Israel; He had not told him where in the land he should reside. Had Joseph gone through Jerusalem he would have had trouble. His common sense stopped him, thus giving God an opportunity to lead him.
