Living in Faith

If you desire to grow in faith and walk in greater faith, here’s a great example!

Simeon was a man in Jerusalem who was righteous and devout and spent his life waiting for the consolation of Israel. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:

“Sovereign Lord, as you have promised,
you may now dismiss your servant in peace.
For my eyes have seen your salvation,
which you have prepared in the sight of all nations:
a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
and the glory of your people Israel” (Luke 2:25-32).

The child’s father and mother, Joseph and Mary, marveled at what was said about Him. Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, His mother: “This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed.”

Yes, Simeon had lived in faith, hoping, praying, and at last seeing the Messiah. No one knows what the future holds. But we do know, don’t we, that whatever lies in the future will require living in faith. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). Living by faith is what a woman after God’s own heart does.

“I used to be so confident. But now I feel like such a loser.” Do you feel this way? My God never asks for us to have confidence in ourselves. He only asks that we have confidence in Him!

I recognized him right away ...
