It has been awhile and we have 3 more guideposts to explore! Why the sudden disappearance? As I have mentioned in previous posts, these guideposts were revealed to me by the Holy Spirit during my personal Bible study. I am walking in them day by day, and discovering “Christ in me” as I go. Walking with God and growing into a full citizen of the Kingdom of God is an ongoing event. The closer you get, the deeper you go, and still there is more!
How about I let the Apostle Paul do the talking on this one:
“That’s why I don’t think there’s any comparison between the present hard times and the coming good times. The created world itself can hardly wait for what’s coming next. Everything in creation is being more or less held back. God reins it in until both creation and all the creatures are ready and can be released at the same moment into the glorious times ahead. Meanwhile, the joyful anticipation deepens.
All around us we observe a pregnant creation. The difficult times of pain throughout the world are simply birth pangs. But it’s not only around us; it’s within us. The Spirit of God is arousing us within. We’re also feeling the birth pangs. These sterile and barren bodies of ours are yearning for full deliverance. That is why waiting does not diminish us; any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don’t see what is enlarging us. But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy”. Romans 8:18-25 MSG
