Trust vs. Control

Trust vs. Control

From my study today…

The problem, however, is that trust and control do not coexist. You can have control or you can have trust, but you can’t have both. This presents a challenge considering that throughout scripture, God’s instruction to us is to trust Him. In fact, we often see that God’s guidance does not include the final picture nor are all the details known.

Well, when you are a type D on the DISC, you can see how someone like me would struggle with this. We all do, of course. Just some more than others.

It’s really about faith. Having “intellectual” faith that God is real is one thing. Having faith enough to give up control and trust entirely in Him and His path for you… well, that’s quite another.
