Desires · Longing · Wait on Him

wait on Him… Romans 8:19…

For the creation waits with eager longing
for the revealing of the sons of God.
Romans 8:19 ESV
We can learn something about waiting… from creation…
Creation was subject to suffering…
not willingly…
but because mankind sinned…
We too suffer while we wait…
but we deserve it…
God placed people in charge of creation…
He blessed us with authority to keep and care for all creation…
and just about the first thing we did was break it…
by rebelling against God… and His one rule…
Creation waits with eager longing…
for the revealing of the sons of God…
For the creation was subjected to futility,
not willingly, but because of him who subjected it,
in hope that the creation itself will be set free
from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom
of the children of God.
Romans 8:20-21 ESV
Those who know Jesus…
those who believe…
are the sons… the children… of God…
and at His return…
our full glory will be revealed…
and all things set right…
Are you waiting with eager longing for His return…?
Do you look forward to all He will restore…?
Take a lesson from creation…
eagerly await… look forward to…
His return…
and our glory…
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time
are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
Romans 8:18 ESV
