One day there'll be no more waiting left for our souls
One day there'll be no more children longing for home
One day when the kingdom comes right here where we stand
We will see the promised land, mmm
One day there'll be no more lives taken too soon
One day there'll be no more need for a hospital room
One day every tear that falls will be wiped by His hand
We will see the promised land, mmm
Hallelujah, there will be healing
From this heartbreak we've been feeling
We'll sing in the darkest night
Cause we know that the light will come
And there will be healing, hallelujah
One day there'll be no more anger left in our eyes
One day the color of our skin won't cause a divide
One day we'll be family, standing hand in hand
And we will see the promised land, we will see the promised land
One day every knee will bow, every tongue will confess
One day when our tired and weary bones find their rest
One day when the power of evil is brought to an end
We will see the promised land, we will see the promised land
If you are living your life on this earth as a Christian, then you understand every word of this song. On this earth, right now, as it is, there is so much darkness and hopelessness. People are lost and confused. They are longing for a world of light and hope. People are sick and looking for what they can't find from doctors and hospitals. Young people are dying way before their time from addiction and suicide as they see no hope in their future. People are angry and divided. The unity of our human race is being shattered.
But, Hallelujah! There will be healing from all the heartbreak. Being a Christian means that you keep on singing even in, and through, all the darkness. How can we do this? Because we know that the Light will come. This is our healing. This is our hope. This is our peace. This is our love. This is our eternal life. Where do we find this great gift? In Jesus!
Jesus, who brought heaven down to earth with Him and shows us just exactly what it's like. He shows us the love, joy, and peace that is heaven. He shows us the healing of every disease that is heaven He teaches us how to live now so that when He, who is the Light returns, we will be ready. This is the hope that we, as Christians, hold fast to.
The Bible talks a lot about 'groaning.' The Israelites groaned while they were enslaved by the Egyptians. The Psalmist said his life was consumed by years of groaning. Jeremiah said he was worn out with groaning and could find no rest. Romans 8:22 says, "We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time." In the time that we are in, these pains of childbirth are getting closer together and more intense. Not only is humanity groaning, but the earth itself, is groaning.
The love that God has for us is so great! 2 Peter 3:9-10 says, "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare." He has done everything to warn us. He has done everything to help us be ready. Ready for the time when every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess (Romans 14:11).
Do you know Jesus? Are you experiencing His love, joy, peace, and His promises right now? Are you able to see past all the darkness? Are you seeing the promise of One Day?
One Day! Hallelujah!
