Trust Comes From Paying Attention to Jesus’ Faithfulness — A Quote by Brennan Manning in “Ruthless Trust”

“Like faith and hope, trust cannot be self-generated. I cannot simply will myself to trust. What outrageous irony: the one thing that I am responsible for throughout my life I cannot generate. The only thing I need to do I cannot do…”

“What does lie within my power is paying attention to the faithfulness of Jesus. That’s what I am asked to do; pay attention to Jesus throughout my journey, remembering his kindnesses (Ps. 103:2).”

— Brennan Manning, “Ruthless Trust”, pp 96-97
