Simeon’s Secret

Psalm 25:14

The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

Simeon had a secret. It was something that God had revealed to him. We don’t know exactly how God told him. Maybe it was a dream. Perhaps he heard and audible voice. The Bible does not say, but the Bible does tell us what God revealed to him.

I have prayed that righteousness would prevail and that candidates would be elected and measures would be passed that uphold Bible based morals.  I know there is more to an election than that, but this is what is first and foremost in my mind. Whatever happens, I know one thing for sure, the government is still upon His shoulders. (See Isaiah 9:6) My trust is in the Lord.
