You taught me that I only trust You when I think I have control of the situation, so my trust is really in me and not You.
You taught me this morning that in addition to the first problem, there is another. When I don’t have control of the situation and should be trusting in You completely, I replace that trust with fear. The “What ifs”, the “yes, buts’” start flying. You have taught me before that all unhealthy fear is future and imagined. You also had me learn that in a crisis, I act like a pagan. Being aware of the problem is the first step to solving it. Thank You.
1. Trust You, not me. 2. Trust You and do not let that trust turn to fear. 3. Trust You, and do not imagine another outcome. 4. Trust You, and when there is a crisis, do not act like a pagan who has never heard of You.
We tend to imagine the enemy’s outcomes, and not Yours. Imagine the positive outcome of trusting You.
We will believe a curse can be true, but not that a blessing can be true.
