If Only …

Just a short meditation, a musing, if you will. It will take you just 2 minutes to read.

I was thinking just recently, if only …


If only the people of God could live in the warmth of His graciousness and blessing forever.

If only all the earth knew of God’s ways and the salvation He offers.

If only the people of the earth would pour out praises to God.

If only the nations of the world would revel in the knowledge that God is a fair and loving ruler.

If only the earth would produce perfect crops and no one would ever be hungry again.

If only all inhabitants of the earth revered God and recognized His awesome sovereignty.

Well, I’m happy to say, the above is far more than mere meditation or musing; it is a future guaranteed, can’t-miss reality. It will be fulfilled in the Millennial (1,000-year) Kingdom and continue into eternity.

This glorious future time is told of in Psalm 67, and I am pleased to print it here for you:

May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make His face shine on us –
so that Your ways may be known on earth,
Your salvation among all nations.

May the peoples praise You, God;
may all the peoples praise You.
May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for You rule the peoples with equity
and guide the nations of the earth.
May the peoples praise You, God;
may all the peoples praise You.

The land yields its harvest;
God, our God, blesses us.
May God bless us still,
so that all the ends of the earth will fear Him.

Just hold on a little longer, you who love the Lord Jesus. That day is coming!
