“The Longing of God”

“For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children 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 freedom and glory of the children of God” (Romans 8: 19-21 NIV).

I tell you, it was definitely a special day in the life of my husband. After much planning, coordinating, endurance, faith and finances the dream of my husband and probably of every American had become reality: the custom designed garage was no longer a dream!

As he stood in his beloved and cherished brand new garage I could just feel his happiness, contentment and the sense of great relief. What he had seen with his inner eye and what he had carried in his heart for years was a blueprint of his garage. Now finally everything came to pass just as he had seen and believed all along.

In that moment I thought of the tremendous longing that our Heavenly Father has. I thought of His love for us and His faith that Christ could be formed in us. He didn’t spare any costs, made plans to give us a hope and future, He even sent His son to this earth to teach us, to remind us and to draw us to Him and give us a new identity. Then when everything was completed, His Son said “It Is Finished,” and then the Father let Him die for you and for me.

Today I want to impress to you that the LORD has a great longing and love for you. He will never give up on you, but carry out His plan for your life until everything is completed and finished. Now rest in this assurance and enter into the Fathers joy and delight.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
