Think of all the wonderful things God could be doing through you right now, if you just Trusted in God alone.
Enoch, Elijah, Abraham, Noah, Moses............... and the list goes on and on............
.........these are some who Trusted God and God worked through them and did great things.
Some of the men above, learned complete Trust in God and not in themselves, so they did not see death before they left this world.
Trusting God is what Adam lost in the Garden of Eden. He decided to Trust others and himself, instead of God. This learning to Trust God must be acquired again and it takes time and it does not come easily.
You will have to do this sometime and if you donít do it now, is that what you want to be doing when you go into the Kingdom of Christís 1000 year rule? Wouldnít it be better to start living the way that life was meant to be lived in Paradise, when you first arrive?
If you think God can do this in an instant, why didnít He do it instantly to all of the above prophets? Is it something that takes time and we must learn of our own free will? Does this training to learn this Trust need to be completed before we are considered Saints? Could that be what God means when He says that the Saints will be ruling with Him in His 1000 year rule?
Think of all the times men failed at Trusting God and the trials they had to endure because of it.
Here is one example and when you are reading your Bible, you will find many more.
Moses and Aaron stole Godís Glory at the rock of water and the people started Trusting in Moses and Aaron, instead of God. Because of this sin, Moses who was one of the humblest of men, did not get to go into the promised land with the Israelites.
Think of all the times we Trust in our own abilities (that in fact were given and can be taken away by God) and the Trust we put in other people, before we put our Trust completely in God.
How many times do we lean upon our own understanding?
Trusting in God is easier said than done, so what is stopping you from learning to do it now?
If you havenít tried it, then how do you know what you are missing?
