Healing and Restoring Basic Trust

The #1 most healing ingredient
you can minister to others is

Basic Trust.
Or can you?


The #1 healing ingredient needed today is - ironically - basic trust!
Satan's number one strategy is to wound us from day one so that we are less able to trust God. An inability to trust God is the grandfather root to every sin. Basic trust is the ability to hold our heart open to God, others and ourselves. Basic trust is an absolute must for those who would minister to hurting people who are not yet healed and free. Isn't that almost everyone?
