We are relational creatures. God put into us a desire for relationships. When born we do not know about mistrust. A brand new baby gets care from people, provided sustenance and being provided some physical touch. Their noses work and their eye sight develops too and of course they can hear. Then their eyesight focuses and they develop some familiar sounds. The new baby cannot trust only â€śsafeâ€ť people yet. What happens there? In life Iâ€™ve been exposed to dangerous and unsafe things. Time and again, theyâ€™d pop up and Iâ€™d recognize them for what they were. I learned to listen, watch, expect, and deal with it when it came up. That taught me to learn distrust. It showed me that there are times to be careful. Then, growing up in L.A. I also learned about the concept of manipulation of other people, being on guard for it and being suspicious. I wonder why I donâ€™t remember ever being suspicious of God. Well, I was disbelieving and critical of belief but it was not a distrust of Him. I wonder why I didnâ€™t have that part? Is it kind of like the baby thing with other people and not knowing the need for it? Hmmm, thatâ€™s interesting. Am I like a baby that just doesnâ€™t know better? I donâ€™t think thatâ€™s it. Maybe itâ€™s the lack of experiencing anything different from God. He has always provided for and is reliable about himself-always. Maybe thatâ€™s the difference. God is a safe and secure thing in my mind. Maybe thatâ€™s itâ€¦I think so.
