Trust: Flee

Trust: to hie [speed, hasten] for refuge, to flee for protection. We think of it as fleeing to God for protection – but Scripture does not talk about “trusting to the LORD” but “trusting in the LORD.” We don’t flee to Him for protection; we are already in Him. We flee for protection in Him – He is the protection. It is fleeing the thoughts that wish to drive us out.
