In my last post, I forgot one distinctly thought-provoking quote from the book I have been reading that really stuck out to me, so here it is.
Fear is useless; what is needed is trust.
Sound familiar at all? Well, to all of those in formation together or someone who has heard from me already, it is very similar to the moto us aspirants came up with. “Trust don’t overthink!” Back to the quote at hand though. We are a people who lives in constant fear. Though it may not be shown outwardly, all live in internally. What is fear but an entrance into ourselves for Satan? Living in fear has gotten people no where but in a state of unsurity which can drive them to dark places. That is not what God wants of us! Fear takes us far from the ultimate goal in heaven, via Jesus Christ who died for us.
So if fear is useless to us, then what is to replace that fear we constantly live in? We need to trust. With trust we can do so much more. Trusting in God shows Him that we believe He knows what He is doing. Trust means we will give ourselves over to God’s will for us in life. What better place to be than in His loving arms through all of life so that we may join His son, Jesus Christ, in heaven. Yes, trust is hard to accomplish, but it is so important. Just trust in God and He will provide.
