Luke 2:29 Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your word;
These are the words of Simeon, the prophet and righteous man who has just met Jesus and his parents in the Temple following the leading of the Spirit. How can he be so calm? Because the Lord has fulfilled His word to him. He knows that he knows, and he knows that he can trust Him. God has done exactly what He said He would and there is nothing else for Simeon to do or to worry about.
