Heaven Pt. 10

“And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.” Ge. 15:5 KJV

In case you are just stepping into this series, we are meditating our way through the biblical verses about Heaven. I believe meditation should be an act that fills our minds with possibilities. When I meditate on a subject I should come away inspired and changed. I should be incited to some action by the thought I have had. We have all heard the statement “so heavenly minded they are of no earthly good.” Any meditation on Heaven should prove that statement a lie. Thinking about Heaven should motivate us to become more productive and useful in the here and now.

Yesterday I asked you a question: “What has your view of Heaven inspired you to do here on Earth? “

Do you realize God has a dream for your life? When He created you He made you complete with a transcendent purpose. You were made for big things. You were made to cooperate with a certain group of believers to create the building of His kingdom in your arena. You were born with a set of gifts that equipped you to accomplish the task He assigned you at birth. You were born with all this even before you believed!

So tell me what do you think happens if you don’t fulfill your purpose? Is that even possible?

  1. I was waiting, Pastor J, to see what someone else said. haha! I’m not sure and will have to think and pray about this. Thank you for getting me to do that. . .it’s always a good thing! God bless you!

    • Victor Plymire, veteran missionary to Tibet, once said “Why is the door open? Surely to enter! Laborers must not have obeyed the Lord’s call or there would be someone entering this open door.” “High Adventure In Tibet”, 199.
      Since reading this many years ago I have struggled with the idea that if I do not obey the Lord’s command there may not be anyone else to come and stand in the gap! My question is one I have never fully answered. Perhaps someone in the body can shed light for me.

  2. Thanks for sharing, Pastor J

    Like Deb, I am thinking …

    I am thinking about Moses (the castaway turned leader), and I am thinking of Pharoah (the one whose heart GOD hardened). I am also thinking of myself and the number of times I have walked around or walked away from what He asked me to do…

    Like Deb, I am still thinking! 🙂


  3. What do you think happens if you don’t fulfill your purpose? Is that even possible? These are questions I really need to think about but here’s a question to think about. Would God call us home before our purpose is fulfilled? Personally, I don’t think so. As I’m writing, I’m thinking that it is possible not to fulfill your purpose in life because we all have “free will” and for some of us the choices that we make are not the right ones, so our purpose He has for may not get fulfilled. These are just my thoughts on it. Thanks Pastor J, for making me think about our Home above.

    • It is an interesting question. I have done more thinking about it and I as I view the parable of the talents I guess it not only is possible but may be the case for some people. My prayer for us dear readers is that we will stand before him on that day totally ready and having done all!
