One thing I want to say is that like Simeon, when we walk with God, He will show us some mighty things. This is not necessarily in visions and dreams, but the knowledge of His will from the Word of God. I've walked with Him for 58 years now and what He has shown me is tremendous.
Anna's faith is also wonderful. Her and Simeon's faith are bright islands of light in the midst of the darkness of the times. Ours can also be that way in our current age of darkness. The light of Christ shines greatest in times of great darkness. I can testify of that today. Anna was now 84 years old and had only been married for seven years before being widowed. She too was waiting in anticipation for the Christ to be revealed. She waited patiently and never departed from the temple. She too accepted Christ as the answer! She went and told everyone who looked for redemption in Jerusalem. Why are we so quiet about it today?
