The World is WAITING on YOU! - Romans 8:19

The World is WAITING on YOU!
Romans 8:19

Click on Logo to LISTEN NOW!!!


BlogFam, We are already in the midst of a series entitled: ON THE EIGHTH DAY: Spiritual Keys to Moving ON.  I pray that this series has been a blessing to you.  We have been focused on Romans 8 and on today, I just wanted to say that the next few verses, actually Romans 8:19-25, are connected in such a way that I sense that over the next few days we will do a series within the overarching series.  So, pray with me and all of our BlogFam as we journey through this passage of scripture and glean all that we can get from it in this season. And so we begin…again…

The World is WAITING on YOU!
[Romans 8:19]
For the creation WAITS in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.

Friends, when it is time for you to move on, the world will be watching to see and waiting to hear your witness as one who moves on as a child of God.  In other words, there should be something different about your move, about this move when compared to the other moves in your past and the moves of those who do not have a relationship with the Almighty, those who are not being led by the Spirit of God.  This move should be different.  It MUST be different.   This move must bear witness that you are a child of God, led by the Spirit of God to obey the word of God, know the will of God, and do the work of God. 

This is a different move because it comes as a result of prayerful discernment for even if it seems to be an all of a sudden decision, you know that for some time now, our God has been preparing you for this moment. 

This is a different move because in so many ways it does not make sense on paper logically, with your bank account financially, to your family and friends socially.  Nor does it make sense when you look back at the other moves you have made in your life.  BUT the overwhelming sense of peace that surpasses all understanding compels you to keep moving forward. 

This is a different move because in this season, you KNOW that this move is connected to your divine destiny, your principle purpose, your awe-inspiring aspirations, and this move WILL bring glory to God.

This is where we are, BlogFam!  As children of God, we do not move simply because it feels good.  We do not move because things are rough and tough.  We do not move because it is the most popular, prestigious, friendly, or familiar thing to do.  NO!  As children of God, in everything, we MOVE because in everything we are to be witnesses that we are, indeed, children of God.  AND the world is WAITING for the children of God to bear witness of the Light of Christ in every MOVE, no matter how great or small.

For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.

And you actually had the audacity to think, even if for a quick moment, that this MOVE was all about you!?!?!  Really?  No Sir and No Ma’am!  You are a vessel who has chosen to surrender yourself to the will of the Most High and in obedience, you are moving, you are taking the next step, going in a different direction, or returning to that familiar space.  YOU are surrendering your mind, body and spirit to the ONE who knows where your total self can be used as a witness on behalf of the Kingdom of God. 

And do NOT get it twisted.  You MUST remember the REAL reason why this shift is happening and will be sustained in your life.  It is NOT simply because you deserve some kind of promotion in the Body of Christ; but because there are men and women, boys and girls who are waiting to hear about the goodness of the Lord!  There are people who are waiting to hear about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  There are people who are waiting to hear and to see -
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me/YOU,
    because he has anointed me/YOU
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me/YOU to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
    and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
    to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.
[Luke 4:18-19]

AND YES, the Lord God will use your gifts and graces, your talents and your experiences in this next move BUT not because you are so great BUT because there is so much more that NEEDS to accomplish through you for the sake of the Kingdom of God and THIS is what people are waiting on.  Please let me help you understand – and burst your bubble if I need to – This move is NOT all about YOU!   BlogFam, when it is time for you to move, the world will be watching to see and waiting to hear your witness as one who moves on as a child of God.
For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.

BlogFam, this is NOT the time for you to be ashamed of the assurance of your faith or cowardly in your conviction about Christ or shy about your salvation story!  NOW is the time for you to witness, worship, and work as the child of God that you are and to speak and show, in every move that you make, that you are, indeed, a child of God –

For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.

BlogFam, The world is WAITING on YOU!

God Loves You and I do too!
