To trust vs. To believe

"He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water." John 7.38
When you believe in Jesus according to the Scripture, the Holy Spirit must flow. If the Holy Spirit is not flowing, it is because there is no trust, but mere belief.
Believing is like the dating period where there is no commitment from either party. But trust relates to marriage, where both parties commit themselves to one another for the rest of their lives.
Most Christians think they trust when in reality they simply believe.
