In the last couple of years I have heard of not less than six accounts of people who I know or know who knows them, who have slumped and passed or who slept and did not wake up. Leaving spouses, children, loved ones, colleagues, neighbours and friends behind.
They left businesses, careers, projects, dreams, visions, plans and fame behind. So many of them also left without seeing the answers to some/many of their prayers.
So many times we see or hear people wanting to or angrily give up on God because He has done “nothing” for them since they started following Him. Some say He has stopped answered their prayers for a long time. But is it possible they are not thinking well…
What about life, what about salvation-the fact that they have escaped the eternal flame, what about getting to sleep and wake up instead of having to pay to get oxygen? I could go on and on but so many times we think on the have-nots, and forget the haves, so we become ungrateful and kick against the one who has loved us so purely and truly.
If you are saved and on your way to heaven, that is the greatest thing God could ever do for you!
You also must obey the Lord—you must worship him with all your heart and remember the great things he has done for you. 1 Samuel 12:24(CEV)
