Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:22


8:22 For the whole creation groaneth together - With joint groans, as it were with one voice. And travaileth - Literally, is in the pains of childbirth, to be delivered of the burden of the curse. Until now - To this very hour; and so on till the time of deliverance.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:22


Ro 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth, etc. The world is in travail, groaning for deliverance. That it is in travail is certain; there is unrest and crying for deliverance everywhere. It may not understand its trouble, nor even what it wants, but the meaning is that it is fallen, its wishes frustrated, and it is sighing for deliverance. These groans and sorrows are a prophecy of a time of deliverance when there shall be "new heavens, and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness" (2Pe 3:13).

    The spirit knows what we need therefore he searches our heart. Intercession is made on our behalf daily. When we become determined in our walk to let nothing separate us from the love of God we can be assured the enemy will come against us. But as Paul writes no matter what I should not allow anything pull me away from God.
