The question came. So gentle. Yet unmistakeable.
What would it look like, right now, if you really trusted Me?
And I had to laugh. You see, there I was, standing in the middle of my bedroom, saying with my lips, "Lord, I trust You," yet petrified with fear to touch anything in the room, lest I pick up the bug that was going around.
And as I stood there, frozen in fear, God whispered.
What would it look like, my beloved daughter, if you trusted Me?
Really trusted Me. Right now. Not tomorrow. Not in a week or a month or a year. But right now. In this moment.
And I realized...this trust thing? It's not a one time deal. It's a day-by-day, moment-by-moment choice.
A choice to believe. A choice to receive.
And ultimately...a choice to rest.
Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Matthew 11:28-30 NIV
But I trust in Your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in Your salvation. I will sing the Lord's praise, for He has been good to me.
Psalm 13:5-6 NIV
When I am afraid, I put my trust in You. In God, whose word I praise - in God I trust and am not afraid. Psalm 56:3-4 NIV
