Trust doesn’t mean do nothing

People tend to think that trust means inaction. Like, oh, if I trust in God, he will do everything. This frustrates me when people believe the Lord has to act on their behalf. Trust does not mean do nothing. Often we don’t know how to hear from God or care to, for that matter. Our egos may tell us that we have enough. That we are doing enough. We don’t have ‘time’ for God. You mean, the huge white-bearded man in the sky? Why cater to him or ask for his input, one may think. But we need God. He is more than an outside force who created everything. His voice comes from within. When we listen to God, we accomplish a lot more for ourselves, for our family–for humankind. One may wonder how to hear from God? It starts with a conversation. It begins with studying scripture. I didn’t mean that you should wholly depend on scripture. Many people do this. They have the Bible trump, Jesus. God is not only in the Bible text written 2,000 plus years ago. God is not only sitting up in the sky holding all the universe(s) together either. God is as breathing and alive as you are and wants to be an active force in your life. The more you focus on him, the easier it will get. Go into a quiet place. Get away from the noise. Meditate on his word. Ask. And then wait to hear back. The answer often comes from your intuition and can even come from others. But please be careful with the ‘hearing from others.’ They can steer you their way, and when their voices outweigh your own and God’s than you are in the danger zone. Listen: anything pure, anything whole, anything that is beautiful and good comes from God. Trust is faith in action.💕🙏⚛️🎑🌟🌏

  1. Zina I love this. For trusting God is an action. I also liked how you mentioned how to hear from God. One can always hear from God when we read His word. God speaks all the time, it is us who are not listening to His voice.

    It reminds me of this scripture in John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:”

    Blessings to you my dear. 🙏

    1. That is true, my friend. It is often us who don’t listen or turn our backs. God is unchanging. We are the ones who look the other way. As always, thank you for your feedback. Blessings to you too!❤️🙏


  2. I love this fact :  God is as breathing and alive as you are and wants to be an active force in your life. Yes, God is purely living in our ❤ those who trust and believe must know this Amen. Great words Zina 🙏
