Monday Vitamins: Those who know, trust

“Those who know, trust”

I am with you always
The Eternal, Always-Existed One Has promised
Sometimes I stretch full out on His words
Like a home on its foundation
Pull them up like a blanket
To keep the chill of the unknown at bay

At other times I inspect the words
As if He has  a reputation for being untrustworthy
Testing them like Mr. Beaver in “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” tested the ice of the frozen lake before trusting his weight to it

But He is the unchanging one
And the distrust I sometimes feel is baseless, residual
An inheritance
As Ann Voskamp notes
From the first ones created
Who heard a question and believed a lie

So I reach for the antidote
Bottled in Psalm 9:10
“Those who know Your name trust in You, for You, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek You.”

Your Name embodies Who You are
Personal, intimate, growing knowledge of You is the antidote to distrust
Seeking to know You intimately must be my primary pursuit
For those who know, trust
