Every day challenges can test our trust in God. Fear and anxiety can rob us from faith. The future may seem uncertain right now, and worry keeps occupying too much room in your heart, in your mind, but remember this: God is already in all of our tomorrows. The Bible assures us that He knows our way, and He has a plan. And we can trust God's way is the best way for us. We've collected some of our favorite Bible verses about trusting God that will reassure your faith and bring a new spring of hope.
God's timing is perfect. We may never know why certian things happen during our lives on earth, but we can trust that God's plan is for our good and that He goes before us. Trusting in God doesn't mean we put on a smile and fake the appearance of faith - sometimes trusting God is crying out to Him in our pain. Our true hope is knowing that we can rejoice in the pain.
God never asks us to figure it all out on our own. He just asks us to trust Him, to recognize His leadership and Sovereignty in our lives. And His promises in Scripture tell us that he makes our pathways straight. There is power when you trust God. Our security and peace can rest on God alone - not our own circumstances, other people, or our own ability. We can believe His Word when he says that he will not leave us nor forsake us. As you read these Bible verses, may you regain trust in the One who created you and watches over us. Meditate on these Scriptures morning and evening and you will experience the power of hope!
A Prayer for Trusting God
Lord, I thank You that You are the God of the impossible. You can do anything. I want to trust in Your ability and not my own. Teach me to see difficulties in my life from Your perspective. Help me to focus on You and Your power. I want to be like Joshua and Caleb who believed in a good report and focused on You even in hard circumstances (Numbers 14:7-9). My responsibility is to carefully read, trust, and obey Your Word. Today I bring before You this difficulty in my life (Name a hard situation you are right now facing). Help me not to fear but to trust You in this situation. I declare my faith in Your ability to fulfill Your promises to me. You will fight for me and win the battles in my life. You are mighty, powerful, righteous, and true. In Jesus' name. Amen.
