IF ONLY…

Reference text: Numbers 11:25-29

Numbers 11:29 “Are you jealous on account of me?” Moses asked in reply. “I wish all of the LORD’s people were prophets and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!”

In the world’s context, ‘if wishes were horses, then beggars will ride’. Moses’ words also represented a wish, but because that desire was nested in the Lord, its manifestation became evident in the book of Joel: ‘in those days, I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh and your sons and daughters will prophesy(Joel 2:28). That was the fulfilment of Moses’ wish.

As I saw the fulfilment of what Moses earnestly desired, what he sought that God’s people would have, I also drew up a list of what lay on my heart. Like him, how I wish and pray that all the people of God:
– were real lovers of God
– genuine servants of others
– truly knew God for ourselves
– sought for beauty in God’s presence
– sought for respite in His bossom

How I wish above all things that God’s people:
– knew how much we are loved
– knew how closely we belong
– knew how much we are forgiven
– knew how much we are worth
– knew how far God is willing to go for us
– knew who we are and whose we are
– knew what we have and why we are here

If only we had the slightest idea, oh! what a wonderful world and utopia we will live in.
