Trust has to do with getting to know who God is. “The root choice is to trust at all times that God is with you and will give you what you most need.” Henri Nouwen also writes, “At every moment you have to decide to trust the voice that says, ‘I love you. I knit you together in your mother’s womb (Ps 139:13)” He who formed your identity is able to develop and free it in His timing and ways. To know God is to trust that He is able to cause to stand that which He created- including us. He who called you is also the one making you holy, and He is able to cause you to stand (Romans 14:4–“Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand.”)
