Heavenly Father, we are glad that our fate, our future, and our life are in your hands. we know about your love for us because of the gift of Jesus. We know about your desire to save us because of your loving grace. We know your demand for holiness is met by the sacrifice of your Son.

What is the importance of Simeon's meet with the baby Jesus and his mother in the temple? Simeon was a just and pious man who was very much in tune with the Holy Spirit. He believed that the Lord would come back to his temple and renew his chosen people. Simeon was not only in recognizing the Lord's presence in the temple. Anna, too, was overflowing with the Holy Spirit. She was found every day in the temple, attending to the Lord in prayer and speaking prophetically to others about God's assurance to send a redeemer. Anna is a model of godliness to all believers as we move ahead in ages. Advancing age and the dissatisfactions of life can easily make us pessimistic and hopeless if we do not have our hope placed correctly. Anna's hope in God and his assures grew with age. She never ceased to worship God in faith and to pray with expectation. Her hope and faith in God's promises fueled her strong zeal and passion in prayer and service of God's people. What do you hope for? The hope which God places in our heart is the wish for the kingdom of heaven and eternal life as our joy. By placing our trust in the assurance of Jesus and relying not on our own strength, but on the blessing and help of the Holy Spirit. Does our hope and zeal for God grow with age?
