Romans 8:22-25 ERV; We know that everything God made has been waiting until now in pain like a woman ready to give birth to a child. Not only the world, but we also have been waiting with pain inside us. We have the Spirit as the first part of God’s promise. So we are waiting for God to finish making us his own children. I mean we are waiting for our bodies to be made free. We were saved to have this hope. If we can see what we are waiting for, that is not really hope. People don’t hope for something they already have. But we are hoping for something we don’t have yet, and we are waiting for it patiently.
What’s getting ready to happen? What is it that cries out “more”? What is this unsatisfied longing? Could it be that we have only scratched the surface of what God created us to be? Could it be that everything we’ve seen or experienced until now is simply a prelude, a precursor to the grand finale?
My heart has always cried out for more of God. I’m always searching, reading, listening, watching for a glimpse of what’s been promised. I don’t know about you, but the life I’m living right now is a far cry from what God has promised us. To be the head and not the tail, a lender and never a borrower, above and not beneath. My father, Abraham, was a whole lot wealthier then I’ve ever seen in my family line. Not that I’ve sought after wealth, but the Word does say, “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.”
Father, do you hear my groaning? Do you hear my cry for more? Do you hear me when I call out for help? YES! Yes you do! Your ears are always open to my cries and your eyes are always watching over me. There is nothing you miss or that slips by your line of sight. You are all seeing, all knowing, all loving and you’re my Father so whatever you have is mine. Thank you for the hidden treasures I must constantly search for. Thank you that you love me so totally that whatever I’m in need of, you’ve provided for me. How I love you always. You’re my constant keeper and my heart is forever yours. Amen!
