"All Creations Groans"

Romans 8:21 and 22 tells us that all creation groans to be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. All creation is groaning for the sons of God to manifest HIM.
I have always loved the Sandi Patti song, "was it a morning like this?" Speaking of resurrection morning. Was it a morning like this, did the earth rejoice to feel you again? I get chills every time I hear that! Not only does it paint a picture in my spirit of the joy and trembling the earth felt, but to know that He is resurrected in His people. The earth is groaning and crying out for the sons of God to manifest and let Him come forth through us!
The word resurrection in the Greek means "a standing up again, a resurrection from the dead, a recovery {of spiritual truth} rise from the dead." He has stood up again in us! We are the proof He resurrected. We are the witness of the resurrection. Witness in the Webster's means "serving as evidence or proof, a sign." We are that proof, we are that sign, that HE lives!

Did the grass sing? Did the earth rejoice To feel you again?
Over and over like a Trumpet underground,
Did the earth seem to pound: “He is risen”
over and over in a never ending round “He is risen, alleluia, alleluia!”
When we step forth each day, may the earth rejoice. He is risen in His people!
Every day is resurrection day! Praise Him!
