For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. (I believe we are living in that day) All creation anticipates the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. And even we Christians, although we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, also groan to be released from pain and suffering. We too wait anxiously for that day when God will give us our full rights as his children, including the new bodies he has promised us. Now that we are saved, we eagerly look forward to this freedom. For if you already have something, you don’t need to hope for it. But if we look forward to something we don’t have yet, we must wait patiently and confidently. Romans 8:19-24.
I know I’m going out on a limb here, but I don’t believe this is a ‘sweet by and by when we get to heaven’ promise. God wants us to live like this in this age to usher in the return of Christ. I have felt an increase in the power and presence of the Holy Spirit like never before. I have felt I’m giving birth to some pretty intense things. This bears witness in me that we are indeed living in the age Paul was speaking about in these verses. Please don’t let religious mindsets keep you from allowing the Holy Spirit to reveal truth to your spirit.
Jesus was very clear in saying, “All things are possible to the believer.” (Mark 9:23 TPT) He also taught us to pray, “Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.” It’s always been Gods will that we operate in the earth as He operates in heaven. He gave instructions to rule and dominate the earth. He did it all with His Words and we should do the same.
To believe for humanly impossible things is how God created us. The problem doesn’t lie with Him, it lies with us. We’ve allowed the world to set the level of our expectations and limitations. We wait for the latest report on the news to tell us what’s going on, instead we should be reporting what the Word says and He will back it up with signs following.
Dare to ask big and expect big. God is a big God and there’s nothing impossible for Him. It’s the Fathers good pleasure to give us, His believing children, the Kingdom. Not for when we die and go to heaven, but while we’re living, ruling and reigning in the earth. He didn’t call us to think like this world, act like this world or be like this world. His Word has called us out to think like Him, act like Him and be like Him. Time to change!
