just call us the Tunkhannock Times

Good thought of the day

When most people say they’re trusting God, I’m afraid they mean it passively.

Our church is not going to do a capital campaign, we’re just trusting God to bring the resources if He wants us to have them.

I’m not really going to seek out that promotion.  I’m just trusting God, if He wants me to get it, I’ll get it.

I’m not going to confront that situation.  I’m just trusting God to make things right.

However, trust is an active verb.
Proverbs 3:5-6 commands you to trust in the Lord with all your heart.
That’s not something you can do passively.

Truly trusting God involves pursuit.  Action.  Obedience.  Involvement.  Initiative.  Follow through.

Without these components, what we call trust is merely wishful thinking.
