Trust In The Lord With All Your Heart (20 Inspiring bible verses)

Last updated on June 26th, 2020 at 03:26 pm

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding

Proverbs 3:5-6

We’ve all faced frightening challenges in the past.

And it does not end there.

The devil continues to tempt us daily in diverse ways.

When you are fearful about where you are, its important to always consider the book of Proverbs 3:5.

King Solomon, the wisest king in his time, admonishes us to never lean on our own understanding.

Instead, we must trust in God first, before anything else.

But here is the truth.

Trusting God is not an easy thing to do.

And that’s because, as humans, we need an easy and quick escape from our trials.

For instance, If you are yet to get a job for years, it is difficult to continue trusting God.

Likewise, if you are sick for years, it is normal that you will steadily lose your faith in God.

And there is also nothing wrong with doubting God. We are humans after all.

I read through the story of Sarah and Abraham.

When she was told she would have a child, she laughed.

At that point, It was difficult for Sarah to trust in the Lord.

She was ninety years old and could never imagine getting pregnant at that age.

But God had a plan from the beginning.

Then the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’  Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” Genesis 18:13

In the end, God fulfilled his promise and Sarah conceived and had a child

If you are finding it difficult to trust in the Lord with all your heart, mind, and soul, here are inspiring bible verses to invigorate you.

Bible stories to inspire you to keep trusting in the lord

1. The story of Moses, the Egyptians, and the Israelites

As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians, marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the Lord. 11 They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt? 12 Didn’t we say to you in Egypt, ‘Leave us alone; let us serve the Egyptians’? It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!”

13 Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

15 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. 16 Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground. 17 I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians so that they will go in after them. And I will gain glory through Pharaoh and all his army, through his chariots and his horsemen. 18 The Egyptians will know that I am the Lord when I gain glory through Pharaoh, his chariots and his horsemen.”

This is one of those inspiring stories that should motivate you to trust in God at all times

In summary, The Israelites were held up by the Egyptians for years. But God, through Moses, freed them from their bondage

Just after Pharoah let them out of Egypt, he changed his mind and pursued them

As the Pharoah and his army approached, the Israelites were terrified

They said,

“Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die?

The Israelites never trusted God.

God has intentionally told Moses to camp in a land bounded by the sea.

So, there was no place to run. The only option was to get killed by the Egyptians

But God had a plan from the beginning

He wanted to prove himself to the Egyptians and Pharaoh that he is God

Through his power, God did the unthinkable. He separated the Red Sea and allowed the Israelites to walk through it.

What can we learn?

There are times that life places us in an unbearable position

We are faced with so much pain with no hope in sight

Each time we feel that way, remember that God has a plan

He knows what you are going through.

Therefore, like Moses, it important to always trust in God.

He can make an unimaginable escape from your pains

2.  The story of Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego

At this time some astrologers[b] came forward and denounced the Jews. They said to King Nebuchadnezzar, “May the king live forever! 10 Your Majesty has issued a decree that everyone who hears the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music must fall down and worship the image of gold, 11 and that whoever does not fall down and worship will be thrown into a blazing furnace. 12 But there are some Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon—Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego—who pay no attention to you, Your Majesty. They neither serve your gods nor worship the image of gold you have set up.”

13 Furious with rage, Nebuchadnezzar summoned Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. So these men were brought before the king, 14 and Nebuchadnezzar said to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the image of gold I have set up?

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to him, “King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us[c] from Your Majesty’s hand. 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.”

26 Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!”

The story of Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego is very inspiring to encourage you in times of trials

But there is an important aspect of this story that can easily be missed

They said, “But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

This is not a lack of faith but an understanding of the way God works

Sometimes we are going through pain and have prayed, yet, there is no solution in sight

And quickly, as expected, we lose faith in God’s saving power

But Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego were ready to obey God until death

They knew what’s at stake – that they would die if God didn’t intervene

But yet, they trusted God and obeyed his commands first

Paul said,

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
