As You have promised

Today’s Encouragement is Luke 2:28-30 NLT “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’”

As You have promised –

God had promised Simeon (v26) that he wouldn’t die before he saw the Messiah.  So, on the day of his dedication, 8 days after the birth, the infant Jesus is brought to the temple, and the Holy Spirit brought Simeon (v27)! 

Simeon (v28) ‘took the child in his arms and praised God…’ Now Lord, I can die a happy, peaceful man because… just like you promised me… my eyes have seen Your salvation! 

Can you imagine… this aged gentleman, who for years had held on to this promise of God…

Now holds the completion of that promise!

And we today hold in our hearts, the completion of all God’s promises… Jesus.   

Our Messiah, the Lord of Lords, King of Kings… the final Word!  We need nothing else!  Just like Simeon, we are completed by His presence.

Father God, You are always faithful to Your promises, You are always faithful to us! Grant us also this gift… that we will remain faithful to You, for all our days.  We ask in Jesus Name!

Faithful to the End
