"That nature (creation) itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and corruption [and gain an entrance] into the glorious freedom of God's children." (Romans 8:21 AMPC)
The nature is in perpetual bondage to decay and corruption. It is going naturally in the direction of decadence. This was not God's original plan, but when Adam and his wife fell into sin, decadence entered our world. It was like a button that was pushed that triggered an atomic bomb of decay and corruption.
God's reversal strategy that will undo what the enemy is currently perpetuating is for His children to manifest His glory here on earth. He wants us to be the salt of the earth, the light of the world (Matthew 5:13-14). Salt is well known for the purpose of preservation of some perishable food stuff. He has also called us to preserve the earth and the people from perishing. We have a mandate to rescue the perishing and care for the dying. We must let them know that Jesus is merciful and He will save them from their sins.
Another notable quality of salt is sweetness. We also have a mandate to bring sweetness to sour situations in people's lives and destinies.
We would not be able to achieve these and many of our mandates by living in isolation from the people, we must take a strategic position in their midst (Matthew 4:12-16).
ACTION PLAN: As a Christian be strategic about your location. Prayerfully allow God to locate you where He can use you to cause a transformation.
PRAYER: Oh Lord, I release myself for divine posting.
