Anna’s day

Luke 2:36-38

Luk 2:36 And there was a prophetess, Anna the daughter of Phanuel of the tribe of Asher (she was advanced with many days, having lived with a husband seven years from her virginity,
Luk 2:37 and herself eighty-four years as a widow) who did not leave from the temple, serving night and day with fastings and prayers.
Luk 2:38 And at the same hour she approached them. She began to give thanks to God, and to speak about him to all those who were waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem.

Anna’s day

Some details about Anna might have caused her to be disregarded by those around her: her age, her gender, her title (prophetess), her tribe (Asher, not Levi), her status as a dependent widow. But the LORD did not disregard her. She was valuable to him. Her ministry was important to him.

If you struggle with doubts about yourself and your ministry, don’t. God has a purpose for you. If you cannot see it, maybe it is because your day has not come yet. Be patient. Anna had her day, and yours will come. Keep serving him as best you can, and trust his timing.

LORD, give us the patience of the prophetess.
