Session 7


Read: Exodus 34:6, Isaiah 19:20, Zephaniah 3:17

Listen to “Defender” then read the following:

Giving car keys to a new driver is an act of trust. You're putting your life in that person's hands, trusting him or her to get you from Point A to Point B without incident. Every glance at the radio or adjustment to the A/C sends your fingers gripping deeper into the seat. With every approaching vehicle your foot presses harder on the imaginary brake in the passenger's side floorboard.

Following Jesus is the decision to give God our trust, to hand Him the keys time and time again until we are so comfortable with His driving that we stop worrying about whether He’s using the blinker or going the right way.

Getting to that place where we trust God with everything — relationships, careers, money and future — is a lifelong journey. At times, we will lose our temper and ask Him to turn the car around. But God isn’t flustered by our outbursts, because He is unlike anyone we’ve ever known.

Exodus 34:6 describes God as compassionate, gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. God doesn’t love us based on what we do or give up when our relationship goes south. He fights for us, rescues us and delights in us.

God is worthy of our trust. Will you allow Him to show you that one step at a time?
