Is there anything more difficult than placing our trust in someone other than ourselves? We are humans, this is our sin nature. We believe we know better, we have it all figured out and we are in control. Trusting God with our lives is an afterthought at best.
I’m fairly certain very little is more upsetting for our Creator. I mean, other than blatantly discrediting Him as God, acting as if we are more worthy of trust and are capable of doing it all alone, is very likely a slap in the face. After all, choosing to trust ourselves over trusting God is doing exactly that – discrediting Him.
In this season of flux where I am not even remotely in control of our circumstances, God is lovingly and gently releasing my death grip on the need to control. He’s teaching me what trusting Him REALLY looks like and reminding me it is a safe place to be. I’m learning that my death grip on control, is actually letting control keep its death grip on me.
