The man is perfect in faith who can come to God in utter dearth of his feelings and desires, without a glow or aspiration, with the weight of low thoughts, failures, neglects, and wandering forgetfulness, and say to Him, “Thou art my Refuge.”

The true man trust in a strength which is not his, and which he does not feel, does not even always desire.

Is there not many a Child of God, who having begun to deny himself, yet spends much strength in vain and evil endeavor to accommodate matters between Christ and the dear Self – seeking to save that which so he must certainly lose – in how different a way from that in which the Master would have him lose it!

Do you ask, “What is faith/trust in Him?” I answer, The leaving of your way, your objects, your self, and the taking of His and Him; the leaving of your trust in men, money, in opinion, in character, in attonement itself, and doing as He tells you. I can find no words strong enough to serve for the weight of this obedience.

~  George MacDonald

Man-kinds trust would only go about half a circle, leaving nothing but an huge opening; in which all the most untrustworthy and beautiful things could but come in and collect. Free to leave by bouncing off the crooked line he draws, but never able to make any of it “stick”
But! God created a solution for how to meet them half way in the lack. Yeshua became man, and trusted His Father, His eyes ever on Him, His ears ever trained to His voice, His body ever turned, bent into the wind to obey Him, completing the circle with what it looks like to die to Himself. Breathing His last, full of all man-kinds sin, He took His next breath and – trust – for us, was born!

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
