The enjoyment of getting older. Yes, I have many aches and pains at time. But more importantly, I have history with my Lord and my Savior!
That is glory for me!
I continue on reading from the book of Luke – chapter 2 – and now I have come to some dear words that I may have skipped over in my younger years. But now, those words are glory for me.
Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all nations: a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel.” – Luke 2:28-32 (NIV)
Simeon was an old man. God had promised him that before he died, he would be allowed to see the Savior of the World – the Messiah!
It was long awaited. I can know deep down within my soul, that a day never passed by, without Simeon having a fleeting thought, “Will today be that day?”
This morning, I am reminded of an old hymn – That Will Be Glory For Me.
To know Him. That is my focus for 2019.
Do you know Him?
My Song: Yes, that will be glory for me.
