Good morning! Even though the sky may be gloomy this morning our hearts should be full of joy because God promises that we will be revealed as His sons and daughters and that we will be brought into glorious freedom where we will feel no negativity.
The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons and daughters of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. (Romans 8:19-21).
Children spring out of bed early Christmas morning in eager expectation of the day’s wonderment. We should be that excited for Jesus to come again and reveal heaven to us. When He does, His love will capture our hearts, driving out the fear, anxiety, resentment, hatred or depression that we may be feeling this morning. We will no longer mourn the death of a loved one, a pet, or our favorite bloom. Lions and lambs will walk together, nature will flourish, rivers will run clear, and we will breathe fresh air. “The creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the Children of God.”
