Life can get complicated at times.

Now and again, life brings challenging moments that could dampen our trust in God.

It could be anything. It could be your failing health, your job, sicknesses, or financial difficulties.

In hard times, it is not unexpected that your confidence in God will start to waver.

But, it would be best if you didn’t freak out or worry when you are confronted with awful situations.

And that’s because God is in control and is aware of your problems.

Luckily for us, there are “God is in control Bible verses” that can motivate us.

These scriptures could be our only hope in trying times.

We must be patient in our afflictions and continue to trust God for an answer.

The ways and thoughts of God are not like ours.

God sees everything and will definitely come to your aid (at his time)

A few months ago, for a moment, I had lost hope in myself.

A patient of mine was operated on, and soon after, she started bleeding heavily.

Unfortunately, there was not a functioning blood bank in the facility.

And with the way she was bleeding, I knew she only had a couple of hours to live.

At this stage, I had lost faith in my abilities to save her.

But then, I knew God was in charge of the situation.

So, after doing the best I could, I quickly prayed to God.

Just when I thought there was no chance for recovery, God intervened. First, the bleeding began to subside, and then it stopped.

If you are struggling with any problem, remember God is in control.

There are no impossibilities with God.

Be patient and put your trust in him.

I have put together bible verses about God is in control to encourage you in your trials.

More words for encouragement

1. Be strong in the Lord

As Christians, we must be strong in the Lord

We must have unquenchable faith in his power to save us from all manner of temptations.

We are his people, and he has promised to save us from the devil

But it is not that easy to be patient in your trials when there is no hope.

How long will you wait for a solution?

The story of Job teaches us to be faithful in hard times.

We must persevere and renew our strength through prayer and thanksgiving.

In a single day, despite losing his riches and his children, Job was still faithful.

He remained unshaken, knowing that God was in control of his trials.

He rebuked his wife, who intentionally tempted him to “curse God and die.”

Yet, even in the face of defeat, he stood his ground.

Likewise, we should learn to trust in the Lord.

And in our patience, we must believe that he would marvelously redeem us from our trial.

The scriptures say,

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

Romans 12:12

2. Be prayerful

In your trials, remember that God exists

Please don’t lose hope because there are no impossibilities with him

He can save even in impossible times

Therefore, trust in him

When going through enormous challenges, you need to trust in God, be patient, and pray ceaselessly

Prayer is the gateway to our salvation and solutions

With prayers and faith in God, your miracle is on the way

The truth is, there are times, I have doubted my prayers

I tell myself, will God answer my prayers? Is there a chance that I will solve this problem?

Over the past few years, I have learned that unbelief is one main reason for unanswered prayers

Don’t doubt anything you want from God. Just kneel and pray to God

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Mark 11:24

3. Return with thanks

God works in mysterious ways

He let us face challenges and be persecuted by the devil

But in all that, he has assured us of protection from all manner of afflictions

Remember the man Job. How the devil persecuted him

God remembered him and blessed the latter end of Job’s life

But that wouldn’t have been possible if he didn’t trust God in his afflictions

Amid sorrow and loss, he gave thanks

He said,

Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord

Job 1:21

Likewise, we must learn from Job and behave in a similar fashion

Give God thanks in your trials and continue trusting in him

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
