Living a Truly Balanced LIfe...series... trust

This will be our shortest installment from this book- but is certainly one of the most important ones. It is a major that I have been seriously learning - honestly... for a while now.
 
Our next remedy is trust in divine power. Trust is a synonym of faith. In fact, it's probably the best definition of faith. Where does it come from? It's a fruit of the Spirit. Everyone is given enough to begin with. And Ephesians 2:8 reminds us that it is a gift: "By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God." If your faith is the fruit of the person, then all you have is positive thinking. If your faith is the fruit of the Spirit, then what you must have is a relationship with God from which trust comes. And it's always trust in Jesus, not in ourselves and what we can do. The genuine Christian, living close to God, distrusts himself, even though he knows he is of value, eternal value in the eyes of heaven. And he trust only in Jesus. He who trusts in is own heart is a fool (see Proverbs 28:26). But the one who trusts in Jesus will be strong and will do mighty things.
