Simeon was waiting for the consolation of Israel. Anna was waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem. What are you waiting for?
I have a burden. There seems to be no real change yet. Therefore, I keep on praying. God will answer my prayer, in His time. I will keep on praying.
Simeon waits. When the right time came, the Holy Spirit prompted and Simeon acted - the Holy Spirit was upon him and he prophesied:
What about Anna? She was also a prophetess. She worshiped night and day, fasting and praying. She gave thanks to God and spoke about the child Jesus to all who were looking forward to the REDEMPTION of Jerusalem. Luke 2:38
Do you marvel at His word and His work, His promises and His power? Do you marvel at what He has done and what He is doing? Are you waiting in anticipation for more?
Are you drawing near to your Father in heaven? Do you know what pleases Him? Do you know what grieves Him? Do you know His heart?
When Jesus told his eleven disciples to move… they moved. When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted. Yes, some doubted. Then Jesus said,
Do you marvel at His wonders? Will you move when He calls you to move? Will you become His messenger?
The Bible talks about ‘true fasting’ in Isaiah 58. Truly, I know very little about fasting… To Him I turn; On Him I lean; From Him I learn; Hallelujah!
Glory to the KING of kings! Honour to the LORD of Lords!
