Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them.
Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy; they will sing before the Lord, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his truth. (Psalm 96:11-13)
The birth of the Savior brings with it the promise of restoration. For the believer in Christ, the restoration begins at once. Our hope is realized and still, yet to come. For the fields and the forests, the birds and the antelope, the oceans and ice fields, anticipation rules. Their anticipation of restoration must continue until our centuries long Advent is complete. We pray Lord that you don’t tarry.
