The Potential

We live in a universe brimming with potentials waiting to be realized.

Every promise, every longing in God’s heart on our behalf is a potential awaiting its realization in us.

But what God means-to-be does not necessarily come-to-be.

Jesus lamented,  “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. (Matt 23:37-38, NASU)

What had the pre-incarnate One longed to accomplish over the centuries?  Was He able to gather Jerusalem’s children into His protection? Did it come-to-be? 

For most of them — no — because they were unwilling.

But in the lives of a willing few — what He wanted to do and be for them came true.

What we need to understand is that God’s intention will absolutely be fulfilled in someone’s life.

The question is, “in whose?”
