By Bible Names of God

      Luke 2:25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name [was] Simeon; and the same man [was] just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.

      Simeon was just and devout and waited for the "Consolation of Israel." "Consolation" means "Paraclete" (One coming alongside, or "with") as we think and speak of the Holy Spirit Who comes to abide in and lead us out in our daily life (walk-with-IN-Christ). Simeon was waiting for the deliverance of the Jews by the coming of the Messiah. They did not as a Nation, receive Him, but some did and were consoled, and Israel shall yet have the Promised Consolation, as Paul was comforted by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit (1Th 1:5).

      Lord, may we also rely upon the abiding comfort of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit all the day. Amen.
