Since God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,” we can boldly quote, God is there, ready to help; I’m fearless no matter what. Who or what can get to me? (Heb 13:5 MSG)
Fear enervates, and as we listen to its screeching demands we readily abrogate our responsibilities, giving up yet more preciously hard won ground, as we try and protect our vulnerabilities - and (once again), quietly skulk off.
Trusting in GOD places us into an invidious position - especially with those that care for us, because instead of proactively working to protect ourselves, we willingly accept and actually ‘increase’ our vulnerability, by dismissing all the potential plans we could be making, and instead relying solely upon the One Who has Promised to help us.
Don’t make anything too difficult about this - it’s no different than going to a doctor with a broken hand. We don’t really want someone messing with it and creating even more pain, but we believe that once they’ve sorted it all out, then healing will come.
(GOD speaking) “Child of Mine - trust in Me enough to honour Me.” ❤️
