Take nothing for the journey

Take nothing for the journey, He has the provision that you need. Taking our own supplies causes us to rely on our strength, when actually there is greater supply in Him. How I long to be in a place of greater trust that I don’t need to add my own strength, add my own spin, taking along my man made provision, when His provision is enough. The root issue is trust, oh God help my soul to trust you more, to rely on you for what I need. Jesus asks his disciple not to take specific things when he sends them out, a staff, a bag, money, bread, extra clothes. This does seem extreme but these are all the things that we rely on, these are all the things that we trust in, when actually he wants us to trust in him. Can he provide you with food, clothing, accommodation? He is able, and willing to provide, but the issue is will you trust.
