The Prophecy of Simeon 12-26-21

I hope that everyone is still basking in the glow of the birthday party. Just remember that He lives and you will be comforted in every moment of your life. I’m not saying that everything is going to go perfect, I’m saying that no matter what circumstances my look like, good or bad, just know that He is in the middle of it. Let the word bless you today.

Today’s Prayer

Father, “How can we say thanks for the things You have done for us? Things so undeserved, yet You gave to prove Your love for us.” Even in our sorrow or sickness You have been there; how can we say thanks? Only by praising You, by sharing Your love, by staying in Your Word, so that our daily life reflects You. How can we say thanks? Oh Lord, let our whole lives reflect our gratitude for Your many blessings as we seek to serve You. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

The Prophecy of Simeon

Luke 2:25-35

25 At that time there was a man in Jerusalem named Simeon. He was righteous and devout and was eagerly waiting for the Messiah to come and rescue Israel. The Holy Spirit was upon him 26 and had revealed to him that he would not die until he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. 27 That day the Spirit led him to the Temple. So when Mary and Joseph came to present the baby Jesus to the Lord as the law required, 28 Simeon was there. He took the child in his arms and praised God, saying, 29 “Sovereign Lord, now let your servant die in peace, as you have promised. 30 I have seen your salvation, 31 which you have prepared for all people. 32 He is a light to reveal God to the nations, and he is the glory of your people Israel!” 33 Jesus’ parents were amazed at what was being said about him. 34 Then Simeon blessed them, and he said to Mary, the baby’s mother, “This child is destined to cause many in Israel to fall, but he will be a joy to many others. He has been sent as a sign from God, but many will oppose him. 35 As a result, the deepest thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your very soul.”
