His people are waiting for Him
Luke 8:40 -
And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people gladly received him: for they were all waiting for him.
In the Bible we see more importance is given to purpose and process. It is by the process the purpose is perfected.
God did not make us without purpose just to exist. When God made us He had a purpose but to perfect the purpose He put us through a process and that process is what we call life here on earth in this flesh.
God very well knew when He created Satan what he would do, God also knew how man would sin and fall. But God also knew the answer and wrote the victory through His Son and His Spirit. The Son became a way for the Spirit to do the work in man.
All Christians who know that life here on earth is the process of preparing us for the eternal life in Heaven, are all waiting for the second coming of Jesus Christ. Their waiting for Jesus is because we know that Jesus' coming is a sign of the completion of all that God is written of the process we need to go through.
God has prepared awesomely for us in Heaven which awaits us and to take us to Heaven is what Jesus would be coming for.
We may be going through difficult times, persecution in the Name of Christ but all these are just temporary and will come to an end but what awaits us is worth more than all that we suffer. So let us with great joy await the coming of our Lord Jesus and to quicken His coming let us quicken the process which the Lord wants to do in us.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, You did not make us for vanity. When You created us You had a vision and that vision was good but to bring perfection in us You put us through a process. Lord, Your wisdom is unquestionable and non-comprehendible. You know what is right and good for us. Lord, we may be suffering for a while but we know what awaits us is worth much, much more. Lord, we wait for You to come and take us to our eternal inheritance in You. So as we wait quicken the process of making Sons of us...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
