  8. 8. From my last talk - about how we can grow trust with others Or.... Some things that can put another “marble” in the “trust jar”
  9. 9. Trust Grows Trust from others grows when we handle feedback well. Trust grows when we demonstrate that we value the well-being of the “family” or community more than personal gain or promotion. Trust grows when people see they are valued and protected.
  10. 10. Trust Grows When we work through conflicts (!) When we communicate with kindness AND honesty. When we are authentic and vulnerable with each other. When people really know that their heart has been heard.
  11. 11. Trust Grows When we clean up our “messes”. When love motivates us instead of fear.
  12. 12. We’re Created to Learn to Trust Early in Our Life But You are He who took Me out of the womb; You made Me trust while on My mother’s breasts. Ps 22:9
  13. 13. But Stuff Happens in Our Life that Wounds and Deeply Challenges Our Capacity and Willingness to Trust
  14. 14. Learning to Trust Again: Danny Lee Silk (Facebook post July 29, 2013): “Learning to trust again was an ability that Christ gave us through His work on the Cross. Jesus went to the Cross to avenge the stolen innocence and broken trust we ALL inherited after the Fall. When He declared that we all had to be “born again,’ He was saying:
  15. 15. In Daddy’s Arms “We are going to start this trust thing over again. I am placing you in the Father’s arms, where you are going to experience unconditional love acceptance and care. He is going to meet your needs when you cry out to Him, especially your need to be loved; here your heart will be satisfied” Having trouble trusting again? Do you know Whose arms you are in? KYLO!!!
  16. 16. Scriptures: Trusting God For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: In returning [to Me] and resting [in Me] you shall be saved; in quietness and in [trusting] confidence shall be your strength... Isaiah 30:15a AMP Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him. Even so, I will defend my own ways before Him. Job 15:13 NKJV The Hebrew word translated “trust” means to wait
  17. 17. Scriptures: Trusting God Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Psalm 34:8 NKJV Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. Psalm 56:3 Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You. Psalm 143.8 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, Eph 1:13 NKJV
  18. 18. Trusting God Probably the biggest challenge each of us faces from time to time. The Enemy’s chief aim is to cause us to question our God’s goodness! What helps you to trust God in the midst of the challenges to that trust? Ask the audience and repeat back what people say - if it bears repeating!
  19. 19. Tried and True Helps Remembering the ways that God has come through for you in the past. Regularly reminding ourselves and “building memorials” to His past goodness and faithfulness to us. God directed the Israelites to do many things monuments, festivals, etc. - to help them remember His Goodness to them. Cultivating gratitude and thankfulness for both “little” and “big” gifts and “kisses” everyday. What we focus on - we make more room for in our mind and heart Patricia King’s story of gaining “Operative Authority” over poverty and lack
  20. 20. Letting Him “In” Tasting and Seeing that He is Good! This is not simply based upon intellect or will! And where we have a deep emotional mistrust of God, there is usually a part of of our heart that is holding past trauma and feels alone.
  21. 21. Jesus! Often, there are parts of our heart that need help to experience Jesus being with us - and Jesus being kind, being safe and strong, bringing truth that sets us free....
  22. 22. Our Internal “Protector” We all have a part of the core of who we are - that is dedicated to keeping us alive; rising up to protect us from perceived threats - both emotional and physical. This “Protector” is suspicious by nature. But they desperately need to experientially know and trust Jesus.
  23. 23. Jesus is Better Jesus is much better at assessing and responding to challenges with lifegiving responses than our “self protective” nature is by itself. And He is confident that even physical or emotional devastation cannot separate us from Him.
  24. 24. Unless.... Unless Jesus is welcomed deeply into to our emotional, self-protective “heart”, then We’ll keep responding as though our selfprotection is the only thing that matters. But, when Jesus is welcomed in - then things begin to shift! Our emotional responses begin to be based upon our security in Jesus.
  25. 25. What Does It Look Like? When we are more focussed upon Jesus than upon self protection? For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 16:25
  26. 26. Exercise Inviting our internal “Protector” to meet Jesus - and see how strong and wise Jesus is at helping us navigate both internal and external vulnerabilities and threatening situations.
