Romans 8:22 “For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.”
Nowhere on earth can we go that God’s creation is not suffering birth pains. Natural disasters occur every single day-from wildfires to earthquakes, hurricanes to tornadoes, and then there are pestilences and drought. Every day the earth is in a constant state of pain yearning for the birth of that glorious day when all pain is gone.
Many people will tell stories of how constant pain racks their bodies. Others have stories of the constant pains of trying to cope with the struggles of life. They groan every day seeking relief. One glorious day that relief will come. Halleluiah! Revelation 21:4 “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.”
“The whole earth groans and suffers.” That’s why Jesus Christ came, died on the cross, and rose from the dead. He came to free us and all creation from the curse of sin and to provide us with eternal protection from the disasters of life.
One day He is coming, and He will create a new heaven and a new earth free from the pain we all endured everyday. The earth will be freed from the storms and pestilence.
God rules over every area of life. Trust Him with yours.
