Forgotten. That’s what more than one elderly person has felt and oftentimes when you visit a nursing home, it’s a reality. A sad reality. But God doesn’t forget. An elderly person has often had YEARS of prayers stored up. And God remembers.
God remembered the prayer of Zecheriah and Elizabeth.
God remembered his promise to Simeon.
God rememeber the faithfulness of Anna.
God has not forgotten even when a person’s head is full of gray hair and their mind perhaps full of fuzz. So we might want to hang around these folks because in their last days, God may just do things beyond what we could beleive unless we drew near. Seriously. How many people probably wrote off that ‘Old Woman Anna’ in the temple courts when she told everyone about the Messiah? Would you have believed?
