Leadership Lessons from Luke 2.22-38

Posted on

There are people praying for the vision God is giving to you.

Luke takes time to dwell on two individuals at the time of Jesus’ presentation. This fact compels us to grasp the significance of what is taking place. The vision of a Savior is being released, but not without the reader understanding the vision behind the vision.

Two individuals are mentioned, Simeon and Anna. Both are righteous people. They have devoted their lives to praying, fasting and worshipping God. Why? For the vision to be released to the world.

We must understand that there are people behind the curtains of our lives praying for the God vision you hold to be released. They are not seeking fame, they are seeking God in hopes that the vision will soon be birthed. They are relentless in their seeking.

Contemplate for a moment all that has taken place prior to Jesus speaking His first word. All the conversations the Holy Spirit has had with individuals even before Jesus takes His first steps. While still an infant vision, God has been hard at work.

Never take for granted the vision God has given you. You are not alone in its delivery. There are many people who play a vital role in it.

How does knowing that God is working through others encourage you in the vision God has given?

Why not take a moment to thank God for all those who are carrying the vision with you, many of whom you may never encounter in this lifetime.
