I’ve been thinking about trust alot – trusting God. if i were to be truthful w myself, i need to get better with trusting God & this is becoming increasingly evident to me as i look at the things & people in which i’ve been trusting. if you’re like me, we put our trust in things that seem to be normal: mate, parents, friends, abilities, education, experience, . . . . We also know that all of these things & people will & have disappointed us from time to time. At various times, if i’m honest, i’ve also been disappointed in God – at least in the short run.
Here’s something i’m becoming really convinced about: trust is an essential component for intimacy. i also think that intimacy & rest are inter-connected. I’ve been musing on these things, this morning, based on the conversation between Moses & God in Ex 33:13-14, where Moses says, “‘If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.” 14 The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
