There was a strong “trust God” element in the sermon yesterday. It was all true and believable, but it didn’t pinpoint where we should be on the spectrum that begins on one side with total self-reliance and on the other ends stops at “trust God and do nothing.” So how do I know when obedience to God calls me to take some bold initiatives and when I’m supposed to step back from trying to be God’s hands and feet? I have a hard time with the passive connotations that “trust God” can stimulate. After all, trust is a verb.
