Simeon did not just pray, he also listened intently. Look at verses 26 and 27, “It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit (and) … moved by the Spirit, he went…” Folks, we have two ears and one mouth. That tells me that we should listen twice as much as we talk. Someone once said that it is impossible for a worthwhile thought to enter into your mind while your mouth is open. Our silence is often golden!
If we will listen to the Holy Spirit in 2017, there will be obvious evidence.
