Waiting on God? Trust Him and believe because good things are ahead of you. His promises are yea and amen.
We have to wait on God, and we don’t like it but it is necessary. Just because we haven’t seen it yet doesn’t mean it’s not coming. His promises are yea and amen. Trust God and believe because good things are ahead of you.
Do you need more strength? Nehemiah 8:10 says “The joy of the Lord is my strength.” We can find strength this holiday season by celebrating the soon coming King and the promise from God he represents.
In Luke 2, we are introduced to Simeon. When Simeon saw baby Jesus, he knew the promise had come. He knew he was holding Messiah, and the gift of God was now in his arms. Simeon was proclaiming that Jesus was our salvation and what He would do for us.
25 And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. 27 So he came by the Spirit into the temple. And when the parents brought in the Child Jesus, to do for Him according to the custom of the law, 28 he took Him up in his arms and blessed God and said: 29 “Lord, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace, According to Your word; 30 For my eyes have seen Your salvation 31 Which You have prepared before the face of all peoples, 32 A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of Your people Israel.” 33 And Joseph and His mother marveled at those things which were spoken of Him. 34 Then Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary His mother, “Behold, this Child is destined for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign which will be spoken against 35 (yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.”
