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)
As I understand it, trust isn’t just abrogating our responsibilities by trying to protect our vulnerabilities and running away. But instead we willingly accept and actually ‘increase’ our vulnerability by allowing ourselves to rely upon the One Who has Promised to help us.
A bit like going to a doctor with a busted hand. We don’t really want someone messing with us and creating even more pain, but we trust that once they’ve sorted it all out, then healing will come. Hallelujah! X
