DAILY READINGS: 1 Chronicles 15:1-29; Ezekiel 16:1-34; John 5:24-47

For the creation was subjected to futility (frustration), not willingly…creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption. Romans 8:20-21, NKJV

Creation has and is suffering because of the Fall. Volcanic eruptions, tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, all suggest that planet earth is protesting in frustration. But the creation will be delivered. There is a day of deliverance ahead. In the coming reign of the Lord Jesus Christ, all will be changed. One day the whole earth will be filled with His glory (Ps. 72). —Drew Craig

Jesus shall reign, where ere the sun,
Doth its successive journeys run,
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moon shall wax and wane no more. —Isaac Watts
