Still playing catch-up on reading the's a great tidbit from Simple Complexities that underscores some things I've been rolling around in my head lately:"...most of my adult life has been consumed with testing God. Testing is so close to Trusting that it is easy to confuse the two. The 40 day fast of Jesus models trust for us and it is there that we hear him say, "Do not test the Lord your God." What's the difference? I still cannot say that I fully know, but I am inclined to believe that Trust is knowing that God will be on the other side of whatever leap is next. Test is jumping just to see if God is there to catch. Trust comes from being full while the test is an act of empty desperation." I've been on both sides of this equation lately, and can definitely relate to the confusion factor.
