Be careful what you wish for

In those days Hezekiah was sick and near death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, went to him and said to him, “Thus says the LORD: ‘Set your house in order, for you shall die, and not live.’”
Then he turned his face toward the wall, and prayed to the LORD, saying, “Remember now, O LORD, I pray, how I have walked before You in truth and with a loyal heart, and have done what was good in Your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly. 2 Kings 20


Here is another interesting story, God had said to the king, ‘time up, you’re coming home’, for whatever reason, the king wasn’t ready to go yet. Hezekiah probably thought he still had unfinished business on the earth. Sometimes I wondered what these could be. It’s a bit like refusing to go home after work when the director says time up.

The king negotiated with God and got 15 more years, looks like a long time but in comparison to eternity in heaven it’s negligible. Significant or not, the 15 year was long enough for him to open his treasures to the enemies who’ll come back to plunder it and also have a child who’ll destroy everything good he’s built all through life.

Be careful what you wish for, sometimes, what you want isn’t exactly what you need. With an option of eternity in heaven, who cares about 15 more years here? Unless we probably don’t quite believe what we think we believe about our eternal home.

Heaven is real; we’ll be there for ever so there’s no point going in a hurry. However, no matter how long we stay here, I pray we all finish well in Jesus’ name.

Wish come true is real but most of the time that we saw that people are showing good wishes. But sometime wish come true and some times those wishes are not become true hence these moments are never come again and again in our life.

Individuals get a kick out of the chance to visit lodgings however some of the time they don't have time in light of remaining burden. As I am occupied in that I like to such an extent. .
