23 Bible verses about Trusting God in difficult times

As Christians, we know we will be tempted.

Temptations could come in any form and at any time.

When you are going through difficult times, it is not unusual to doubt God’s liberating power.

Will things get better? If God loves me, why do I still face challenges?

A few weeks back I had asked God for something, and then, it never came to pass.

I became worried and unhappy.

But I also knew that, at all times, we must trust in God.

The truth is, God’s decision may be so hard to comprehend.

We may keep asking ourselves why he allowed us to face so many trials and tribulations.

But don’t. Be like your father, Abraham.

While reading through the book of Genesis chapter 22, I reminded myself that It pays to trust God.

Despite waiting a hundred years before having a son with Sarah, God instructed Abraham to sacrifice his only son, Isaac, to him.

That’s quite an unimaginable thing to do in this present time.

But Abraham trusted God from the beginning.

He did not ask or suggest other alternatives.

He quickly took his son in obedience to God.

In the end, He was blessed by God beyond his expectations.

God said, “I swear by myself, declares the Lord, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son,  I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore.”

I have compiled bible verses about trusting God and not worrying. Read and be blessed.

Final words of Exaltation

1. Do not lean on your own understanding

Most times, you will agree that we always want to find solutions to our problems.

If we are searching for a job, we are quick to send applications to different companies and call those that can help us.

Likewise, when we are sick, we quickly rush to the doctor’s office to medications.

While this is the natural action to take, we must trust in the supernatural power of God.

As a doctor, I have seen God’s miraculous interventions in clinical practice.

It may be hard to believe that God hears prayers, but I have seen God’s hand of healing over my patients.

Each time, you are faced with trials, trust in God and pray.

Don’t be in a hurry searching for solutions because God may just be tempting you.

Do not always believe in your abilities, because God knows all.

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise—
in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?

2.  Have an unshakeable faith in God

If you’ve prayed to God about your issues, and yet have no hope in sight, HAVE FAITH IN HIM.

Always remember that God has already blessed you with other good things in life.

Most of the time, we are not thankful enough for God’s blessing over our lives.

If you are searching for a Job, it is because you are healthy.

God has taken away sicknesses and sorrow from your life. Trust in him to return with other blessings that your heart longs for.

I Pray that God will reward your soul with everything you are expecting according to his will in Christ Jesus. Amen.
