Bible Verse:

Luke 2:25-26 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.


Your circumstance may change, but that does not mean that the word of God has changed. Therefore, stop wondering if what God has promised will ever happen. Numbers 23:19 reminds us that God is not a man that he should lie and what he hath spoken he will make it good. What the scripture is saying is that it is not possible for God to lie or for anything to go contrary to what His word has said. God will make good on every word he has spoken; do not allow yourself to believe otherwise.


If God made good on the promise He made to Simeon, why would he do any different for you? The Holy Spirit had revealed to him that he would not see death until he saw the Messiah in Luke 2:26. Simeon believed that word and so even though he was close to the time of His death, he kept believing that God would make good on what was promised. That belief kept him going day after day. In the course of time, Jesus, the promised one, was born and brought to the temple so that a sacrifice could be offered on his behalf since that was the law concerning every firstborn.


The day that Jesus was brought to the temple, the Holy Spirit led him there and he saw the child and held him in his arms and gave praise and worship to God and said “Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: for mine eyes have seen thy salvation” The words of Simeon revealed that he was unwilling to depart this life until he saw, touched and celebrated what God had promised. The Psalmist had a similar determination in Psalms 27:13 when he said “…I had believed to see goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.


The lesson to be learnt from Simeon is to never allow yourself to give up on what God has promised. If He said it; he will do it. For Simeon because God had spoken it as far as he was concerned that was the only possible outcome.


Life Application:

Be unwavering in your belief that God will make good on every promise that he has made concerning your life.

Prayer:

Lord, I believe your word. I stand on your promises and trust you that you will always do everything for my good. In Jesus name, amen.
