Trust. (Proverbs 3:5-6, NKJV)
The right trust brings confidence and security that brings about a boldness and refuge.
Trust is earned over time.
When we learn to trust over time, that trust results in loyalty.
Time + Trust + Loyalty = Intimacy.
God wired us to have intimate relationships with Him and our mates.
It all starts with learning to trust in the Lord.
Cautions to be aware of:
Wrong expectations in any relationship is the #1 cause of problems.
Saying “I love you” is not showing it.
Always taking and never giving.
Always having to win.
Not keeping your heart right. (Proverbs 4:23, NKJV, TLB)
Be careful about strongholds in your life.
