The beginning of this year was filled with a new form of trust in the Almighty. The type that I’ve dissertated with friends, ruminated at length while staring at passing clouds over many days.
Trusting the Almighty that requires nothing of me. Yeap. No-thing. Not a thing. Zero percent my effort. The formulae goes something like this:
Trust in God = 100% God + 0% Me.
No brainer, perhaps for some of us. But for me, it’s somewhat tainted with the law of “Fine Prints”, in between the “ask” & “you shall receive”. Guess I have tasked myself to delve into the Word & got lost somewhere in my dissertation of faith, that surely there must be something I need to do to receive that which I have asked for.
To this day, the verse simply still stands: Ask, and you shall receive.
Am gonna take a deep dive into trusting without the need for any of my credentials / effort / strength. That being said, I don’t mean I’m going to live frivolously & pray. Am still going to apply the wisdom of the Word of course. However, it will be asking & watching, from the posture of resting in Him. Just knowing that He desires to bless me cos He loves me.
I will set memorial stones along the way, to celebrate my Abba, who always respond in love, grace & favour, when His beloved takes a deep dive to trust Him, for the impossible.
Psalm 9:10 NKJV
And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.
