Finish Line

What do you want to accomplish? What do you want to get done? What’s your HEA?

Following the Great Flood, Mankind was already a few generations into their second shot but they were living in disobedience to God…again. And not just disobedience, but open defiance. They were building a temple/tower to assuage their fears: God would not drown them as he did their ancestors, they told themselves. Never mind that he promised he would never destroy the earth again by flood. When your focus is on the problem, you lose sight of what’s important. So they kept building, higher and higher, intent on reaching the heavens and showing God what they could do.

What they did not realize (or perhaps they did) was that because they were of one mind and one purpose, with their sights on the finish line, they would have succeeded. God said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.” (Genesis 11:6) Who knows, they might have put the first man on the moon 10,000 years before we did.

God confounded their languages and scattered them (Genesis 11:8) though, because they were operating in sin. But the point remains: the power is in us to complete our purpose and achieve our destinies. We were created in the image of God, after all. And if he spoke the worlds into existence, should there be anything that’s impossible for us to do?
