"And not only the creation, but we ourselves too, who have and enjoy the firstfruits of the [Holy] Spirit [a foretaste of the blissful things to come] groan inwardly as we wait for the redemption of our bodies [from sensuality and the grave, which will reveal] our adoption (our manifestation as God's sons)." (Romans 8:23 AMPC)
It is not only the entire creation that earnestly wait for our manifestation, we ourselves groan on the inside all the time. This is because we are now filled with the Holy Ghost, He groans in us and makes us desire a total redemption from sensuality and deadness. He makes us to hate the garment spotted with the flesh. He makes us to desire immortality with God in heaven.
He was the one that brought Jesus back from the dead, He will also do likewise in our case. Death has completely lost its power over us, we can only sleep in death.
We will manifest God here on earth and thereby bring glory to His holy name. However, there are heights of manifestations we cannot experience on earth until we cross over to the other side of Pisgah. There we will see Him as He is, we will forever be with Him. He will forever be our Light and eternal Salvation. Oh, what a wonderful day to be united with God in an inseparable manner, forever! My friend, what is your plan for that day. Our brief soujourn on earth is to prepare us for eternity, are you ready for it? How prepared are you for this final day? Every step and decision is preparing you for which side of eternity you will be. If you accept Christ today, you are placing yourself on heaven's side of eternity. If you reject Him, you are placing yourself on the hell's side of eternity.
ACTION PLAN: Accept Jesus today and place yourself on heaven's side of eternity.
PRAYER: Oh Lord, today I accept Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. I want Him to give me power to follow the path that lead to eternity with Him.
