Groaning and Glory
We’re all familiar with things like headaches, toothaches, and bellyaches—the kinds of things that make us long for relief. But have you ever had a “soulache”? Paul talks about how the Spirit in us groans for God to bring relief to our deepest longings. Even creation itself groans for God to make right what our sin has corrupted. Looking for relief outside of Jesus just adds to our pain. But when our hope is in Him, He promises to work out all things for our good and His glory.
His and yours,
