You’re stressing as you take an eye test. You squint your eyes to make out the tiny letters. Try narrowing your eyes now. What happens? Your face crumples up in a frown. Not an attractive look.
As Christ-followers, God longs for us to completely trust him because he is completely trustworthy. Sometimes difficulties can cause us to lose focus and begin to rely on other things – money, stuff, even our own abilities. As a result we can “live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust” (Matthew 6:22 Message). Not an attractive look!
So “don’t let this throw you. You trust God, don’t you? Trust me” Jesus (John 14:1 Message).
