My daughter-in-law left me a voicemail one day, excitement in her voice, to share about a song she had heard. The song was 'Oceans' by Hillsong and the part that really struck her says, 'Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders'. As she contemplated what that meant, she was amazed to think that a person could have trust without borders, completely unlimited trust for anything or anyone. As Christians, many of us would claim we trust God but our lives and attitudes often suggest otherwise. The psychological community tells us anxiety in the US is at an all time high, and Christ followers are not the exception. At the root of anxiety is fear. If we do indeed trust God without borders, what do we have to fear? He is soverign and nothing takes Him by surprise. Scripture assures us of this and also tells us He works all things together for our good. (Rom 8:28) For the 25 years I have walked with the Lord, it has been a test of trust. Before He redeemed me, fear was a significant part of my life and even after it took years for my trust in Him to overcome fear. My key verse for at least a decade was Isaiah 41:10 'Fear not for I am with you...' But at one point I realized He is trustworthy and though much of what happened in my life was out of my control, nothing was out of His. And He did use it all for my good and His glory. There's an old poem that sums it up quite nicely. I encourage you to consider, do you trust God without borders?
