Every day when I reread the Christmas story for these short posts and every day I am amazed all over again at the intricacies of God’s plan and all that happened in these four chapters. Today I want to encourage you to ponder the words of Simeon’s praise and Anna’s testimony. These two individuals were devout and the Spirit of God filled them with praise at the sight of their Savior.
During the year I think we can all have a tendency to fall into the normal routine of a chapter a day and praying as you drive to work. Some Christians fall out of Bible reading and prayer altogether at some point during the year. Let this Christmas season be the thing that kickstarts your Bible reading and prayer life going into the new year. Simeon and Anna longed to see the Savior and we long to see Him return.
Ponder the beauty, the miracles, the glory of Jesus during this season of celebrating His birth. Joy to the world, the Lord has come, let earth receive her King. Let every heart prepare Him room, and Heaven and nature sing.
