Rooted in God-Trust: It’s a Personal Decision

If you want to build unshakable trust in God and pass your trust tests, you have to let Him teach you intimacy and dependence. These are the roots God is establishing in your life.

Intimacy and dependence come only through personal knowledge and encounter. Knowing God‘s name means knowing Him personally and knowing His nature.

There are plenty of people who use the name of God, and maybe they know a lot about Him, but it‘s clear they don‘t really know Him, because they don‘t trust Him and they don‘t seek Him.

God doesn‘t expect us to build trust in Him blindly, without knowing His character. He doesn‘t expect us to build trust just on what we‘ve heard about Him. He wants us to build trust on personal knowledge. That‘s the only way to have true intimacy and dependence.

“And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You” Psalm 9:10

In Christ I am SHE {Saved. Hopeful. Empowered.}
