Sunday, September 19, 2021

The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.
— Romans 8:19

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Eagerly waits! Don't you just love that idea! Sounds like an oxymoron. It's not. Think of a groom waiting for his bride to come down the aisle. Imagine parents of a child that is due to be born. Remember what it was like as a child waiting for Christmas morning. Eagerly waits! That's what creation, so caught up with decay, disaster, and death, is doing! And what is creation waiting for so eagerly? Our transformation and revelation as God's triumphant and glorious children. Sounds pretty wonderful for a time and world like ours.

My Prayer...

O LORD, God of all creation and source of all redemption, I long for the day that every tear is dried and my bondage to decay is over. Please keep my heart set on the glory that is to be revealed when Christ returns. In the name of the Lord Jesus I pray. Amen.
