An Ever-Burning Faith

faithIn just three verses God gives us all we know about Anna. She was a prophetess and a godly woman who loved God into her sunset years. Of her, Luke wrote: [She] did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day (2:37).

  • Anna was a widow. Having lost her husband after only seven years of marriage, this woman knew sorrow. But she apparently allowed her suffering to strengthen her faith. Anna spent her long life in faithful service to the Lord night and day.
  • Anna was a senior citizen. At age 84, Anna still looked for “redemption in Jerusalem” (Luke 2:38), for the Messiah, for the Savior—for Jesus! How blessed she was when God rewarded her years of faith by allowing her to see the Hope of Israel!

The life of Anna shows us the fruit of long-term faith. Faith that “is the substance of things hoped for” (Hebrews 11:1).

Nurture an ever-burning faith as you look to God for the hope of Jesus’ Second Coming.

“How can anything be so thrilling and yet so sobering?” This question was repeated over and over in my heart as Jim and I celebrated yet another military change of command for a dear friend and neighbor. The parade ground was packed with troops in formation who had been standing there for well over an hour before the ceremony even began.

God’s Will in the Workplace

by Elizabeth George August 02, 2022

Over the years, people have often asked me how they could “know” God’s will for their career. They thought if they had that answer, they would get a much clearer perspective on their jobs and their direction in life. I tell them God’s will regarding their work isn’t some mystical revelation they have to hunt for. Rather, it’s spelled out clearly in the Bible.

They Shall Rise and Call Her Blessed

by Elizabeth George July 26, 2022

I've studied the verses of Proverbs 31 for many years. This woman has at times both intimidated and inspired me. While it took me years to begin to understand the purpose of these passages, I have always prayed for my husband and children to fulfill Proverbs 31:28, which says, “Her children rise up and bless her; her husband also.”
